Keeping Up With Economic Conditions

Your intuition is sharp. You pick up on undertones most people miss. But when will all this economic turmoil end? All the different predictions in the air would cause Nostradamus to scratch his visionary head.

According to the National Association for Business Economics, seventy-four percent of economic forecasters predict that the recession might be over by the end of the third quarter. But you've heard that before.

In these market conditions you need to be on top of your game and in the know. The following sites will help you stay up to date on key economic indicators:

While the number of job losses dropped in May, the unemployment rate rose again – to 9.4 percent. Visit the Bureau of Labor Statistics's Editor's Desk to follow current conditions.

MarketWatch keeps track of the bankruptcies and profit gains.

The twenty, still-unsold homes in your market area aren't the best way to gauge the market's current condition. HousingPredictor.com provides housing news and statistics per state and per city, as well as info on current booming markets.
