Stock and bond markets declined as month-end approached. The yield on the US 10-year rose 7 basis points to 4.32%. US new home sales dropped 11.3% month-over-month in May, the sharpest decline in 20 months, indicating that high mortgage rates from restrictive monetary policy are impacting housing demand.

The median price of new homes fell 0.9% year-over-year to $417k. With the available supply of new home sales rising to 481k, the highest since 2008, further price declines seem likely in the coming months.
