Existing Home Sales were off for the third consecutive month. The National Association of Realtors says May’s totals were down 9.7 percent, well below February’s 13-year peak.

New home transactions jumped 16.6 percent as parts of the country reopened after Covid-19 lockdowns were lifted. 

Orders for Durable Goods also leapt higher in May -- up 15.8 percent on items set to last three years or more. However, last month’s reading doesn’t erase the nearly 20 percent losses in both March and April.
