    The final trading week of May, a month that has historically been a difficult one for those long equities, got off to a very bearish start. Indeed, the major equity averages were notably lower only a few minutes into the session and the losses widened as the trading day progressed.

    New Home Sales Up Nicely In April 2015
    William G. Ferguson  |  05/26/2015
    The U.S. Department of Commerce issued new residential data for the month of April. All told, the report was very positive, with new home sales up nicely on both a sequential and year-over-year basis. Specifically, sales of new single-family houses in April came in at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 517,000. That figure was 6.8% above the revised March figure and up a notable 26.1% from the prior-year figure of 410,000 units. The consensus expectation called for sales of roughly 510,000 new units.

In all, this metric rose to 95.4 this month, up from a downwardly revised 94.3 in April. Initially, the April estimate had been 95.3.

    The U.S. stock market put in a somewhat weaker session today, as traders weighed a batch of decent corporate reports against concerns about rising consumer inflation and a possible interest rate hike from the Federal Reserve later this year. Further, the session had a quiet tone, as investors prepared for the three-day holiday weekend. At the end of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 54 points; the S&P 500 Index was lower by about five points; while the technology-heavy NASDAQ tried to cling to a small gain but closed off a point.
