For the Week Ending May 27, 2016

Please enjoy this quick update on what happened this week in the housing and financial markets
Reports on retail sales, housing and industrial production offer a favorable view of growth for Q2. Continued expansion supports a Fed rate increase.
This week's jobless claims are lower than expected, further supporting growth.The strong labor market is a pillar of the improving economy
Comments by Fed policymakers also point to a nearing Fed policy rate increase. Economists speculate we may see an increase as soon as June.
New home sales surged to an 8-year high in April, jumping 16.6%. Prices for new homes also hit a record high, as tight inventory continues to drive up
Millennials aren't just buying homes; they're selling them too. NAR reports that the number of agents under 30 years old has increased from 2% to 5% since last year.
Pending home sales were up 5.1% in April, hitting the highest levels in a decade. Demand continues to soar, fueled by an improving economy and low rates.
All gave some, some gave all.
Thank you to all who serve and have served. As you enjoy your time with family
and friends this weekend, please take a moment to remember those who gave
their lives while serving in our military.
Now, to keep it fun, here's a joke that those who have served may enjoy. ????
"Well," snarled the tough old Navy Chief to the Seaman,"I suppose after you get
discharged from the Navy, you'll just be waiting for me to die so you can come
and laugh at my grave." "Not me, Chief!" the Seaman replied. "Once I get out of
the Navy, I'm never going to stand in line again!"
