"Existing Home Sales Rise In February"

Except they didn't. Month to month numbers don't matter. Year over year does. And that figure is another stunning drop:

remain 23.8 percent below the 6.60 million-unit level in February 2007.

Only the NAR could spin a 24% drop as an increase, and only the brain-addled press in the U.S.A. would parrot the headline with no criticism.

 Interesting. They even Footnote it at the bottom (#2) saying that month-to-month comparisons should not be considered meaningful, only year-over year.

The headline is all that it takes it seems.   Wonder is Stephen Kim will call the bottom again.
