U.S. new home sales slightly fell in June 2011

Yesterday the U.S. Census Bureau issued its monthly report on U.S. new homes sales for June 2011.

According to the report, in June 2011 the annual rate of number of U.S. new home sales reached 312,000 (seasonally adjusted); this figure   is one percent below the revised annual rate in May 2011 of 315,000 sales, but it’s 1.6% above the annual rate in June 2010.

The median sales price of new dwellings sold in June 2011 reached $235,200.

This news didn’t show any sharp trend change, therefore it didn’t cause much of a stir up in the financial markets as commodities prices and currencies didn’t shifted much yesterday.

Current Nymex crude oil price, short term futures (August 2011 delivery) is traded down by 1.69%, at $97.91 per barrel as of 16:01*.

Current gold price, short term futures (August 2011 delivery) is traded at $1,619.00 per t oz. a $0.3 decrease or 0.02%, as of 16:00*.
