Market Gauges

Market Gauges provide insight into how a given geographic location is doing based upon various metrics. Each gauge gives the current month's value and places the minimum and maximum seasonal value from the past five years at the beginning and end of the gauge. The current month is depicted by the arrow within the gauge.  The five-year seasonal average is indicated by the coloring in the gauge.  Each gauge can be embedded onto a website where it will update automatically each month, just like Interactive Charts.

Sample Gauges

Gauges compare the most recent monthly indicators against their 5-year average, 5-year maximum and 5-year minimum for that month.

They provide market knowledge in no time. The Local Market Insight Report and YTD Detailed Reports are obvious go-to tools when answering "How's the Market?", but Market Gauges will provide an even faster way to put the most recent trends in perspective

  • Choose "update automatically" or "Keep current date"
  • Copy and paste the HTML code onto the source view of your website
