  • 10:38 AM » These 10 U.S. Cities Will Be Even LESS Affordable In 2014, Study Finds (PHOTOS)
    Published Fri, Jan 24 2014 10:38 AM by The Huffington Post
    While this certainly isn't the first time we've made the argument for suburban living , this time we're taking a new approach by looking at the cities that haven't drained your pockets in years past, but are making up for lost time . According to CNNMoney, a team at CoreLogic Case-Shiller , which calculated the increases in housing prices (see below for more) for major metro areas across the country, found the housing markets in these areas are hotter than ever. And we're not talking "hot" in the hip way -- we're talking more in the sense that they'll burn the cash right out of your pocket with their expected housing price gains that near 10 percent by September in some areas. If that turns you off of urban living, consider this: New studies reveal that moving to a city can make you calmer, happier and more connected . (But we're guessing that's if you can afford your bills.) According to their website, CoreLogic Case-Shiller is "the company financial services and real estate professionals turn to for comprehensive data, analytics and services." And as they note with regard to this data in particular, "Forecasts are for the 12 months ending September, 2014. Rankings are for metro areas with populations of one million or more. In addition to its own data, CoreLogic Case-Shiller compiled its results using data from the National Association of Realtors, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Moody's Analytics and the Bureau of Labor Statistics."

  • 8:41 AM » Central Station: Global Selloff Sweeps Emerging Markets
    Published Fri, Jan 24 2014 8:41 AM by WSJ
    The Wall Street Journal's Daily Report on Global Central Banks for Friday, Jan. 24 HIGHLIGHTS 1) Central Banks Intervene As Emerging Currencies Get Battered; 2) BOE's Carney Signals Rethink On Forward Guidance; 3) Central Banks Phasing Out Dollar Funding; 4) Central Banker Talks Aussie Dollar Down; 5) China Moves to Avert Shadow Lender's Default; 6) South Korean Central Bank Concerned About Yen's Devaluation HILSENRATH'S TAKE The forward guidance that central bankers provide on their plans for short-term interest rates is turning into an increasing muddle. Since December 2012, the Federal Reserve has said it wouldn't consider short-term interest rate hikes until the jobless rate falls to 6.5% and unless inflation looks to be moving above 2.5%. Last year the Bank of England said it wouldn't lift rates at least until the jobless rate fell to 7%. Now as jobless rates in both countries approach their respective thresholds much faster than expected, central bankers are playing down the importance of these hard-and-fast numbers.
