Traders, it’s a leading indicator of economic health because the sale of a new home triggers a wide-reaching ripple effect. For instance, furniture and appliances are purchased for the home, a mortgage is sold by the financing bank, and brokers are paid to execute the transaction. So, better than expected data is considered good for the economy

BOE Gov Carney Speaks
