home builder index auf 15 jahrestief

die news spricht für sich. klarer fall von "soft landing............"

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - Home builders' confidence plunged to a 15-year low in July, reflecting growing worries about rising interest rates and declining affordability, the National Association of Home Builders said Tuesday. The NAHB/Wells Fargo housing market index fell three more points to 39 in July, the lowest since December 1991. The index peaked at 72 last June and has fallen in 11 months since then. In July, all three components of the home builders' index fell. Current sales index fell to 43 from 47, the expected sales index dropped to 46 from 51, and the traffic of potential buyers index fell to 27 from 29.
