Housing market reacts to tightening finance and supply constraints

WEEKLY MARKET COMMENTARY  |

The week ahead in financial markets will see a modest spate of economic data, eight different Federal Reserve (Fed) speakers and focus on policy flow, or lack thereof out of Washington, D.C. Fresh information on the sagging state of the U.S. housing sector and a speech by St. Louis Fed President James Bullard in Nashville on monetary policy this week figure to be the primary focus of investors following last week’s announcement by the Fed that it would likely lift the policy rate one more time in 2017 and begin paring down its balance sheet this year. Lastly, in our estimation, investors are not correctly pricing in political risk on the table in Washington, D.C. correctly so the growing sense of crisis at the White House and further information coming from Robert Mueller’s investigation should not be discounted with respect to the direction of equity markets.
