Galleries, Europe and more ...

A few housekeeping notes for a holiday ...

• Every weekend I post a weekly schedule of economic data for the coming week. The current schedule can be accessed in the menu bar above: "Weekly Schedule".

• Receive blog posts via email. Sign up here for free (No subscription information will be sold or otherwise provided to third parties).

• Follow on Twitter.

• Graph Galleries are now active. You can access the galleries by clicking on a graph, or use "Graph Galleries" in the menu bar above.

The galleries are graphs grouped by category:
1) Employment,
2) New Home sales,
3) Existing home sales,
4) Home prices,
5) Housing (like starts and homeownership rate)
6) Mortgage Delinquency
7) Transportation
8) Manufacturing
9) GDP
10) Commercial Real Estate (CRE)
11) Retail
12) Trade
13) Employment Participation Rate (an analysis)
14) Inflation (CPI)

Two examples:

MBA Delinquency by Period Click on graph for larger image in new window.

This graph is based on data from MBA's National Delinquency Survey (NDS)and shows the percent of loans delinquent by days past due.

If you click on the graph, the link will take you to the same graph in the "delinquency" gallery.

The title for the graph "MBA Q3 Delinquency Data, Nov 18, 2010" is a link to the related blog post - and the date is when the graph was posted.

Note the "print" link at the bottom. That will display the full size image (The graphs are free to use on websites or for presentations. All I ask is that online sites link to my site, http://www.calculatedriskblog.com/, and printed presentations credit www.calculatedriskblog.com.)

Year-over-year Inventory And another example from the existing home sales report this week.

Clicking on the graph will take you to the "existing home" gallery. There are seven related graphs in the gallery (Existing home sales, inventory, months-of-supply, etc). You can click on the thumbnails at the bottom to view each graph.

Enjoy!

And on Europe:

Ireland 10-year yield is over 9%

• Spanish 10-year bond yields have hit a record 5.2%.

• Portugal 10-year yield is at 7%.

Thanks to all for reading. Have a great Thanksgiving!
