Although conditions were mixed across the country, pending home sales continued to move lower in October, marking the fifth consecutive monthly decline.
Next release: Pending Home Sales Index will be released on December 30, 10 a.m. ET.
The monthly index covers the past 12 months for the nation and four regions. The data includes seasonally adjusted as well as not seasonally adjusted figures.
