Total housing starts declined 8.0% month-over-month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.434 million (consensus 1.475 million), with single-family starts down in all regions except the West (+4.6%), following a downwardly revised 1.559 million (from 1.631 million) for May.
Building permits decreased 3.7% month-over-month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.440 million (consensus 1.472 million), with permits for single-family units flat to positive in all regions, following an upwardly revised 1.496 million (from 1.491 million) for May.
The key takeaway from the report is that higher financing costs are creating headwinds for builders and preventing activity from being stronger in a supply-constrained housing market.

U.S. Treasuries curve continues to diverge, shorter-dated Treasuries near their lowest levels of the day while the long bond outperforms, trading just below highs. The 30-yr bond is holding highs after the completion of today’s $12 bln 20-yr bond reopening, which met decent demand but nothing spectacular. The sale drew a high yield of 4.036%, which tailed the when-issued yield by a tenth of a basis point. However, the bid-to-cover ratio (2.68x) was above average (2.62x) while indirect takedown (68.8%) was shy of average (72.0%). Equities have backtracked from their starting highs with the S&P 500 narrowing its gain to 0.2% while the Nasdaq (-0.1%) is now down slightly. The desk gave a C- rating on the auction.19 Jul '23 at 2:58 pm #62497
