Housing starts, permits hit record lows in April
May 19, 2009, 8:33 a.m. EST

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - Optimism that the housing slump had hit bottom was damaged Tuesday when the government reported that construction on new housing projects slowed to a record low pace in April.

New construction of single-family homes and apartments plunged 12.8% to a record-low annual rate of 458,000, much weaker that the 519,000 rate expected by economists surveyed by MarketWatch.

The drop was caused by construction of multifamily housing, which fell 46.1% to a record low 78,000. This was the biggest drop since January 1994.

If they can not sell the houses on foreclosure occurs they will never be able to sell the new constructions.

Still houses are been build all over but who is buying, I can tell this much in my neck of the wood they are building but only after you get the loan approved and already sign the papers for the lot and house.

then the construction will begin.

Hey to Hx3...you've been buring that mightnight oil for sure lately and are becoming quite the "man about town" on here...love ya'!

Biccy: I don't think you'd need "credentials"...seriously.You just have to know "something" about a subject and be able to write and present in a manner that people would enjoy and consisitantly subscribe to in order to make an income as a blogger.I promise you my friends have created their own credentials,LOL!
I say this because although sometimes I don't agree with everything you throw out there,you do continue to have an interesting perspective and are passionate.Just my 2 cents,I think you could have a "following."
Consider it? Hedge Funds might be very dicey in the coming months due to some of the internal investigations going on.


www.marketwatch.com...

Raising of taxes inevitable: as a former heavy-investor now a mere dabbler who's too cautious to get back in 100%,THIS scares me.It would reduce the ability of many to continue to invest on any level.

Currently looking at "American Legacy" annuity and can I tell you that you have to be a Borg like Hx3 to be able to understand the freakin' prospectus???

Is no doubt that taxes will be increase, but I wonder what sector will be paying more than the other.

Still government squandering and leaching tax payer without cutting on cost is not going to make any difference.

So in a nation that has lost its money building base and with a high unemployment rates I still wonder whom the government will be leaching for money.

Let's think about housing starts being at a record low. This is good news in my opinion. Less new housing, means there will be less new supply. Foreclosures are already adding more supply to the supply glut in the housing market.

If the housing data was good, the markets would still rally though. It rallies if news is better or worse than expected...

Thats nice of you to say. You must have "friends in higher places" than I right now lol. My friends (if I really had any real ones
) are busy having kids and working dead end jobs with their bs 4 year degree lol.

But here's something that might interest a few people.. hopefully this chart works this time.. today is highlighted in red

.vix under 30?!

Now, we were in single digits at one point, but it has been since sept. since we have seen anything under 30... you will see just by glancing at the chart it looks like we continue the pace lower, which should correlate with higher or at least more level market prices

Yes, hedge funds have been getting a bad rap lately, but thats mostly b/c I dont think a lot of people really understand what a hedge fund does.

The media makes it out to be like they just short, all out, all the time, which isnt true, but it sells for a media story.

But what I want, is to just garner even like 50,000 in capital, and it would be just me and my trading program for the futures.. I have been researching starting my own, and it seems like a LOT OF WORK hahaha.. not only that, but you have to have accredited investors that are super rich, marketing regulations etc... i dont even know if i can talk about it here lol.. so ill prob. stop doing that in public forums

Sorry to rain on your optimism...nothing personal there ya know!


While the stock market is up sharply since early March, the economy as well as corporate earnings continue to suffer. Today’s chart helps provide some perspective as to the magnitude of the current economic decline. Today’s chart illustrates that 12-month, as-reported S&P 500 earnings have declined over 90% over the past 20 months (with over 90% of S&P 500 companies having reported for Q1 2009), making this by far the largest decline on record (the data goes back to 1936). In fact, real earnings have dropped to a record low and if current estimates hold, Q3 2009 will see the first 12-month period during which S&P 500 earnings are negative.

The VIX under 30 will make things very boring. You will see many traders complaining about this
