USD	 Existing Home Sales July 20, 2011 ; 9:00 PM(GMT +7)

FF Notes : While this is monthly data, it’s reported in an annualized format (monthly figure x12). Existing homes make up the majority of total sales and therefore tend to have more impact than New Home Sales.

Why Traders Care : It’s a leading indicator of economic health because the sale of a home triggers a wide-reaching ripple effect. For example, renovations are done by the new owners, a mortgage is sold by the financing bank, and brokers are paid to execute the transaction.

Measures : Annualized number of residential buildings that were sold during the previous month, excluding new construction.

Source : National Association of Realtors (latest release).
