More Bad News for Australia

I'm bearish on Australia.  The latest auto sales news does not increase my confidence:
  • Trend estimates: The May 2013 trend estimate (93 439) has decreased by 0.6% when compared with April 2013.
  • Seasonally adjusted estimates: The May 2013 seasonally adjusted estimate (93 209) has increased by 27 units when compared with April 2013.
Moreover, the trend has been declining for six months.
