By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article**HOUSING SHOWDOWN: Housing bear Gary Shilling and housing bull Mark Kiesel of PIMCO debated the state of the U.S. housing market on Bloomberg Television's "Street Smart" with Trish Regan and Adam Johnson.

U.S. GDP Miss Far Bigger Than Announced, Real GDP is 0% / Housing-Market / US Economy

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Advance Estimate for Q1 GDP came in at 2.2%, down from 3.0% in the previous quarter, and below most mainstream media estimates of 2.5%.

Is This the U.S. Housing Market Bottom? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Analysts, government officials and certainly homebuyers are spending hours trying to figure out if we have reached the housing market bottom.

Yesterday's (Tuesday's) data would seem to suggest the bottom is a bit bumpier than most people think.

According to the S&P/Case-Shiller home price index of 20 cities, home prices declined 3.5% from a year ago, while the 10-city composite slipped 3.6%. That meant fresh new post-bubble lows for home prices.

Improving U.S. Housing Market? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSales of new homes fell 7.1% in March to an annual rate of 328,000, hold your breath and don’t be disappointed. The level of sales would have been much lower if the sales of new homes of February had not been revised to an annual rate of 353,000 from the earlier estimate of 313,000 and January’s sales was 318,000 and not 329,000 as the report shows today. Essentially, there were upward revisions of new home sales from December (small upward revision) through February, which has changed the recent trend of new home sales. The 6-month moving average of new home sales has risen to 331,000 in March, up 13.7% from a low of 291,000 in October of 2010 (see Chart 1). So, the good news is there is a small pickup in sales of new homes.
