Further to that alleged Marketwatch gobbledygook, Morningstar reported today on Dept of Commerce findings:
"Sales of new homes plummeted 9.2% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 494,000 in January, the Commerce Department said Wednesday.
January's figure was the lowest since October and missed forecasts of a 520,000 annual rate from economists surveyed by MarketWatch. It was 5.2% lower than the same period a year ago.
The median price paid in January was $278,800, down from a revised $295,800 in December. There was 5.8 months' worth of homes available for sale during the month, the most since September."
So the earlier Marketwatch bullshxt that the poster first reported, all of which seems to have been exactly wrong, was mere forecasts? And they were 0-for-3?
Good job. But once again, these figures...
