Conforming ARM rates are lower this morning after the NAR announced that pending home sales continued their upward swing in May. Home sales rose (0.1%) for the fourth straight month… the first time this has happened since October 2004! The manufacturing sector’s activity rose to 44.8 in June as well. This was the six straight month this index has increased and the index reading indicates that manufacturing contraction has slowed, but not reversed itself. Manufacturing is a key indictor in gauging the strength of the economy.
