Here is a challenge for this weekend. What economic indicators are still (or again) trending unequivocally down, or if it's bad news, unequivocally increasing?
I went through CR's July summary, and added a few others and came up with the following list:
trucking in June
July architects' billings
nonresidential spending (plummeting)
rental vacancies (going up)
foreclosures (going up)
exhaustion of unemployment benefits (going up)
house prices (probably)
So, what can you add to this list?
