Homebuilders have been beating each quarter. Financials have been using the money from the FED to buy the markets. IN isolated sectors they have decided to make their money on the short side. Home builders happen to be one of the sectors they have decided to short. Because they control the market even though home builders have been doing better than some of the sectors that they are long, home builders do not move up. They, senators, and congress are permitted to collude to make profitable trades. They will need to cover their shorts before home builders have any significant rise in their prices. It is called the new American dream. Get into politics so you can get rich at the expense of the folks that voted for you by holding on to the bootstraps of the financial institutions that funded your campaign.
