"Association of realtors. News releases the January existing home sales data and home sales throughout much of last year where week which was really surprising, given the strength of the economy who had an a low unemployment rate and just a really strong consumer which would seem to indicate that the demand is there. But there are lots of different factors that kind of held down home sales last year, and in December home sales fell to their weakest level since twenty fifteen and a lot of this was because of stock market volatility uncertainty with the government shutdown and rising interest rates which pushed up mortgage rates in November to their highest level in seven years. So basically we're going into the spring selling season, which is a really important time for the housing market. And things are not looking too good. Okay. And turning to the latter half of the week. We'll hear from several fed officials with various speaking gauge. Mostly on Friday. Those could also give us some clues heading into the Fed's next meeting. Thursday, also brings data on durable goods orders, and that's an important measure of business spending rate. So we have December gerbil goods numbers coming out. And in November. We saw that demand for these long lasting goods like refrigerators produced by US factories rose, but that was widely because of increase demand for aircrafts. But this underlying gauge of business investment in the report, the wine item is called new orders for non-defense capital goods, excluding aircraft kind of a mouthful along freeze their to get through, but it fell, and it's, you know, been falling which is sort of surprising given that the tax cut was designed to spur business investment. And we also saw in recent GDP numbers. Some some weakness in business investments. So that will be an important number two to keep your eye on and in the coming report. All right. Plenty to look out for this week. That's Wall Street Journal reporter Sara Cheney joining us from Washington with a preview of the economic news this week. Thanks so much, Sarah. Yeah. Of course.

"So kind of creates a mixed picture for the US economy will shut down the government shutdown that recently concluded that had little impact on the job pictures that fair to say, yes, the jobs report is derived from two different surveys. There's the establishment survey, which is survey of businesses. And then there's a household survey. And so the payrolls our jobs number comes from the establishment survey, and the Labor Department said that there was basically no discernible impacts on payrolls growth in January. However the. The unemployment rate was impacted the Labor Department said is because the unemployment rate comes from the household survey. And so they are were, you know, hundreds of thousands of furloughed federal workers who were answering this question in the survey of whether they were working and so that caused the unemployment rate to rise to four percent. So I guess it would be fair to say that had it not been for those unusual factors. The jobless rate would have remained roughly the same or even sank. Or is that hard to say, it's really hard to say. But I mean, we can say that in January there wasn't impact on the unemployment rate. And so it's just important to kind of look past the jobless rate and look at the other numbers that we got from this report. And we saw strong payrolls growth. We saw pretty good wage growth is well above three percents for several months in a row now. And so I think just taken as a whole. All the jobs report was was a strong one. And as you mentioned, you know, wage growth it remains strong. But I suppose not enough to cause inflation worries or maybe caused the fed to change course, or anything like that. So the fed is repeated over and over that they're watching all of the economic data. And so I think we'll have lots more data coming in the next few weeks, especially given that the Commerce Department has reopened after being closed during the partial government shutdown. So we'll get new figures from the Commerce Department. And so it's really hard to say what the Federal Reserve is planning to do with regards to rate increases based off of this one report, however in the Fed's policy statements that came out just a couple of days ago seem to indicate that there wouldn't be any rate increases this year. However that that could change with all of the incoming data that we have what about particular sectors, Sarah, what we're strong hiring sectors in the January report, we saw strong, hiring and construction and leisure and hot. Hospitality. We actually saw some increase in government heroes as well. So it was pretty broad based even manufacturing went up. So it kind of saved to say that companies are hiring based off of this data. What about the lagging factors or the lagging indicators of the labor market, Sarah? The Wall Street Journal said the report also showed a broader measure of unemployment cluding those to discourage to look for work plus American stuck in part time jobs, but who want to work fulltime that was up last month. Obviously these measures can be volatile for month to month. But this rate has been elevated compared to when unemployment was similarly whoa around two thousand. So I mean, it does suggest that there is at least some pockets of slack in the labor market the use six the so called us street as you note was the highest since February two thousand eighteen. Eighteen so almost a year into shows that there's some slack left. Wall Street Journal economics reporter, Sara Cheney joining us from Washington. Thanks, sarah. Thanks, and that's what's news.

"The partial shutdown of the government now in day.

There are lots of. This kind of growing that a global slowdown could sort of trickle over to the US in impact growth here. Okay. So it's not the first shutdown or partial shutdown, how do they manage this? Fortunately, the Labor Department which produces a lot of the economic data that fed officials and investors look at in still running and publishing these report. So for instance, we had the December jobs report come out the other week and that provides information on the unemployment rate Aaron. That the fed closely watches, there's also private sector data that is published for instance, MasterCard provides information on retail sales, and so these sorts of private sector data can serve as proxies for the missing government data during the shutdown. So is there a chance that we could see wild reactions by investors to this data when at all? Comes gushing through the pipeline. Again. They didn't put it could add to market volatility. However there so many other factors are playing in to what's happening in the market right now. I mentioned before the global economic slowdown. You also have the government shutdown itself that is sort of exacerbating fears, and so I think that lack of data just sort of darkens the picture for investors, and and can only contribute to the volatility.

And we also saw an a separate report that the Commerce Department releases the gross domestic product reported. Pretty big one business investment was also weak in the third quarter. And it's important to not read too much into one month. There one report, but there are some signals that business investment is slowing which could be due in part to uncertainty about the outlook for trade tariffs. Basically uncertainty could be weighing on businesses and manufacturers decisions to to spend. And there's one more report to take a look out on Wednesday. I have thanksgiving holiday.

"It's, you know, a somewhat good gauge on consumer confidence and speaking of consumers and other report out on Friday is consumer sentiment data, which has been interpreted somewhat differently between Democrats and Republicans, right? Consumer sentiment has been fairly strong, especially over the past couple of years. What's really interesting though, is that how Americans feel about the economy is related to their political party? And we've actually seen a very stark partisan divide and consumer sentiment since the election of President, Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen, and this has persisted and we see traces of partisanship cropping up in other demographic measures of consumer sentiment as well. For instance. Confidence among older Americans who are more likely to be Republican than younger Americans. His also risen recently. And another interesting sort of element of this report is the questions that the university of Michigan has been posing. Recently, they actually asked consumers, whether economic conditions would be better.
