US: U.S. home sales unexpectedly rose in October, reaching their highest level in nine months, though higher prices amid tight supply continued to sideline first-time buyers from the market.
The report from the National Association of Realtors on Monday also showed an increase in the share of investors buying homes last month, likely reflecting growing demand for rental accommodation as the economy reverts to normal, thanks to vaccinations against COVID-19.
“Home sales remain resilient given the extremely tight supply of homes for sale,” said Shannon Brobst, an economist at Moody’s (NYSE:MCO) Analytics in West Chester, Pennsylvania. “Potential home buyers will continue to find it challenging to find a home that meets their budget.”
Existing home sales rose 0.8% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 6.34 million units last month. The second straight monthly increase lifted sales to their highest level since January. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast sales falling to a rate of 6.20 million units.
Eurozone: A resurgence of COVID cases and a jump in inflation do not at this point warrant a change in ECB plans to wind down emergency bond purchases in March, ECB policymaker Francois Villeroy de Galhau said on Monday.
With the European Central Bank’s 1.85-trillion-euro Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme (PEPP) due to expire in March, the ECB is due to decide in December on the its future and another one in place since 2015.
“I don’t think current developments change this assessment. From today’s perspective, we should end PEPP net purchases in March 2022,” Villeroy said in an interview with German newspaper Boersen Zeitung.
Since financial markets were largely anticipating its end in March, there was little reason to fear disruptive “cliff effects” when it does, he said.
While a jump in COVID cases in some euro zone countries is clouding the economic outlook, a surge in inflation this year has prompted warnings from ECB hawks to not keep monetary policy too loose too long.
