the dow, s&p are up 19% a piece. it's a huge run. it's why you saw last week some $20 billion flow into stock mutual funds, people putting money to work in the market. it could be an encouraging sign because people are confident or a sign of caution because people are getting in after a 19% rise. maybe they are getting in late. the rise in mortgage rates has been breathtaking. rates have climbs more than one percentage point. the rush to lock in the rates may be helping the housing market. existing home sales in june are expected to rise 5.26 million is what the rate is supposed to be. that would be the highest rate of existing home sales since 2007. if you filled up this weekend, you might have done a double take when you looked at the receipt. if you look at prices two weeks ago, up 20 cents in two weeks.

over all, they tucked her away. they probably don't have the television on. kate is very good about not tuning into that. william and harry, they read and watch everything. kate doesn't. >> it's interesting, victoria said they probably don't know the sex about the child. they are traditional in that way. this country would have a big shower. they are waiting to find out. >> that's right. i think the general feeling in the uk is there are so few surprises in life, why not have one. there's the added pressure of the fact if they knew, then a slew of people would know. it's better this way. they are very good at keeping secrets. we didn't know kate's wedding dress until she got out of the car. it will be exciting for them. their first child. they don't know the sex of the baby, so we wait. >> the same hospital where both the boys were born. i'm thinking about the contrast
of those so many years ago. we are in the age of twitter. the great kate wait has been trending on twitter. i imagine it's another place where tradition will change a bit. they will have the easel outside the hospital and the palace announcing the birth of the baby. >> they are keen for the baby to be born during socialable hours. they have to let the queen know first. if it's from 10:30 at night until 8:00 in the morning, the queen will be asleep. nobody can know. >> don't wake up the queen. >> it's what i love about america, if it happened, the sirens would be extra loud. they said this is a future heir to the throne. they are keen to keep a sense of drama. it could be on twitter. it would be an anticlimax. >> pomp and ciance.
