U.S. home resales rebound in November

Sales of existing U.S. homes rose by 0.8 percent, according to the (U.S.) National Association of Realtors. It was the first increase after five consecutive monthly declines. The annualized pace of 3.82 million units beat analyst estimates of 3.76 million units. In the single-family segment, however, sales remained 7.3 percent lower than a year earlier.
