  • For the week ending 1/17, the MBA weekly mortgage application survey had a composite decrease of 1.2%.  Both new purchase and refinance application submissions declined 2.0% week-over-week.  Despite the decrease, refinance applications are still near the highest level in four months as many homeowners are taking advantage of lower mortgage rates.

  • The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) house price index reviews a smaller data subset than the Case-Shiller home price index but is still used to review home price appreciation trends.  In November, the index appreciated 0.2% month-over-month and 4.9% year-over-year.

  • Existing home sales climbed 3.6% month-over-month in December to a seasonally adjusted annual pace of 5.54 million.  Available for-sale home inventory dropped form a 3.7-month supply to a 3-month supply, suggesting a competitive home buying season is ahead.

  • For the week ending 1/18, initial jobless claims increased to a level of 211,000.  Continuing claims fell to a level of 1.73 million.

This week's important economic reports include: 
  • New home sales
  • Case-Shiller home price index
  • Consumer confidence index
  • MBA applications
  • Pending home sales index
  • FOMC announcement
  • Weekly jobless claims
  • GDP
