Tuesday: May housing starts were down 3.6% building with building permits down 1.8%. This news, while being a little negative, was good for rates.

Wednesday: May home sales data was 0.5% lower than a month earlier. If the number had come in much higher, then that could have been negative for interest rates. This news was benign.

That was it for the week. Not much movement in rates as a consequence.
