By: New_Deal_democrat

As I noted last weekend, as is so often the case housing is frequently the decisive element among the long leading indicators, and particularly so when moneys supply and bond yields are giving us such conflicting signals. Yesterday's report on housing permits and starts put that to rest, as for the second month, permits were higher than at any previous time during this expansion, as did the three month average of starts: and single family permits made another new high: Interestingly, the surge in housing is not occurring so much in the hurricane-ravaged South, but rather in the West: There is no single state, e.g., California, which is responsible for this surge.

The dollar was relatively steady through the morning session, though ahead of the U.S. House vote on the tax reform bill, USD sellers stepped in, taking major dollar pairing to near session lows.

The dollar has traded on a softer tack into the U.S. tax bill votes, although most pairings remained within their respective ranges that were posted yesterday. AUD-USD was an exception, lifting to a two-session peak of 0.7684.
