Also: Retail sales were disappointing, and maybe even surprising. Why the monthly retail sales number isn’t all that the market cracks it up to be. Finally, FHFA head Mel Watt gave his first speech today, and it look as though he wants to open up the mortgage market a bit. We unpack what the change in direction will mean to the housing recovery.
