Funny thing the human mind, how people take a piece of data and come to different conclusions. If the housing #'s look weak, the market will respond to the downside, and vice versa. In reality, isn't it more logical to think that lower #'s are more supportive as this will help to alleviate the total supply on the market instead of adding to the burgeoning supply inventory? Elementary supply and demand in my book. Think about it and watch how the street reacts to the data.
