And other than that, I have no idea what to say about this huge chicken statue just erected outside a shopping mall in China.

Pending Home Sales fell 2.5% last month, while there was a 0.5% gain expected. The decline is thought to be tied to higher interest rates and lower inventory levels. The DOW has been flirting with 20,000 for over a week now and just can’t seen to hit that historic level.
