    D.R Horton reported a 30% cancelation rate last time on top of the 24% previous quarter. Hovnanian just reported a 43% decline in yr over yr net orders in California and insiders have been selling loads of home builder stocks. Think they know something?

    Whenever an analyst takes a stock off their buy list, it's a green flag,time to buy.

    I'm thinking this is a big deal.If housing and housing stocks should go into decline,it would mean,all the Fed's fiat creation and attempt to reinflate the housing balloon, was a failure and the Fed is useless,to bailout the economy.
