MyTrendTimer : Dow Jones Industrial Average analysis of August 28, 2007
Weekly Comment about this asset/index
US Stocks extended losses on Tuesday after minutes from the August 7 Federal Reserve policy meeting showed growing concerns about housing and the consumer even before credit market turmoil picked up speed. The Fed said that falling house prices and tighter credit for home equity loans could weigh on consumer spending, while developments in mortgage markets suggest the housing adjustment could prove deeper and more prolonged than initially thought. The U.S. central bank also said that further deterioration in financial conditions might require a policy response. A weak July existing home sales report didn't help the market. Last Tuesday brought more evidence of erosion in the sector after a Standard and Poor's report showed that home prices fell 3.2 percent in the second quarter versus a year ago.
