Mixed economic data

The U.S. Census reported a 36{3c4481f38fc19dde56b7b1f4329b509c88239ba5565146922180ec5012de023f} surge in sales of newly built homes in July. However, the Conference Board’s consumer confidence index fell for a second straight month. Those mixed data sets come ahead of a key speech from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell later this week.
