Policy Framework How the PBOC interacts with markets in pursuit of its nominal policy goals -- maintaining stability in the value of the currency and thereby promoting economic growth -- is undergoing a shift.
Thanks a lot for taking my question. So, it sounds like your view is that home improvement demand has and will be coupled from housing.
How long do you think that can persist? And what level of home prices and housing turnover would make you rethink that view?
We have this directionally correct but imperfect model that we use to forecast our sales outlook. As I mentioned, it starts with GDP. And to that, we add the benefit from a number of different housing metrics including household formation, home price appreciation, the age of the housing stock and housing turnover.
And if we look at those drivers, we think they all bode well for our outlook.
Now, our outlook would suggest that our fourth quarter cost will be lower than what we reported in the third quarter. So, we factor that into our outlook. In terms of decoupling, there's one metric that's gotten a lot of attention recently.
And that's housing turnover. And if you look at housing turnover, housing turnover is lower than we thought it would be at the beginning of the year when we put together our directionally correct but imperfect model.
So, we went back and calculated what we believe the impact of a lower housing turnover than what we had projected at the beginning of the year, what the impact has been to our outlook. And based on our model, which is not perfect, but based on our model, the impact has been 13 basis points.
And then one other correlation number to share with you, at least through the way that we look at the world, we correlate it housing turnover with transaction. And we don't do a smoothing approach. We do look at the actual data on a one-month lag basis.
If you look at historical correlations from to now, the correlation coefficient was. But if you go and run it again from to now, it's. And if you run it from to now, it's. So, it's decoupled a bit we think in large part because of the housing shortage in the US.
The way that we're talking about housing metrics, it's a bit like a Rubik's Cube.Currency devaluation will improve competitiveness of borrowers in relation to imports, but overall it will certainly become harder to service foreign-currency loans, which are mostly unhedged," adds Mr.
