Monthly Economic Commentary and Indicators
for Realtors & Mortgage Industry Professionals
January is usually a slow month as people recover from their Holiday hangover. That wasn’t the case this year. Thanks to the Government Shutdown, political wrangling in Washington, an FOMC Meeting, and an arctic blast, 2019 had a lot going on right out of the gate. At least the Stock Market took a break from all the recent volatility. Government Employees got back to work – for now – but not soon enough to publish some of the Economic Indicators and Data that are used in this monthly review. We’ll catch up next month – that is if the Government doesn’t shutdown again.
If you look past recent headlines, there is a growing concern about the Global Economy slowing down. That Global Trend will affect specific sectors of our Economy like the Housing Market, Labor Market, and Interest Rates.
Let’s do a quick review of Key Economic Indicators and Data from January 2019 that are important to the Mortgage Industry and Mortgage Professionals.
