Fundamental view

The index of pending home sales in the United States probably rose 0.4% during June compared to May, according to the median estimate by experts, following a 6.1% gain in May, that was the biggest since May 2013.

When a sales contract is accepted for a property, it is recorded as a pending home sale. As an indicator the index provides information on the number of future home sales, which are in the pipeline. It gathers data from real estate agents and brokers at the point of a sale of contract and is currently the most accurate indicator regarding US housing sector. It samples over 20% of the market. In addition, over 80% of pending house sales are converted to actual home sales within two or three months. Therefore, this index has a predictive value about actual home sales.

Although there are some cancellations, they are not enough for the data to be skewed one way or another. The base value of the index is equal to 100, while the base year is 2001, when there has been a high level of home sales. The National Association of Realtor’s (NAR) will release the official index value at 14:00 GMT. In case pending home sales increased more than anticipated, this would have a bullish effect on the greenback.

In addition, the preliminary Markit US Services Business Activity Index, adjusted for seasonal influences, probably slowed down to 60.5 this month. In June the index came in at 61.0, signalling the strongest rate of output growth since the survey began in October 2009.

The market research group, Markit Economics is scheduled to publish an official report at 13:45 GMT. Higher than expected readings would boost greenbacks demand.
