Investors are looking at the ADP National Employment Report which suggests the labor shortage is increasingly a problem. The U.S. private sector added 692,000 jobs in June, according to ADP which is down from the large gain in the prior month.
Investors are also digesting the new MBA Mortgage Applications data which showed a fizzling demand in the latest week. Indeed, mortgage applications to purchase a home were 17% lower than the same week a year ago. The average interest rate on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage with a conforming loan balance increased to 3.2% from 3.18%, assuming a 20% down payment.
