Efforts to talk the market up/down by those with the most to lose?

Hmmmm. The "bull" stories are mostly about the fact that prices have risen. Some of the "bear" stories are 1) about the USA, 2) the fact that houses are expensive, and 3) that price rises will reduce. These don't fall into my definition of bear news.

I don't think there's any conflict or confusion at all.

If there were stories that said prices were falling in the UK, and others that said they were rising, then I would agree with you. But no-one's saying they are falling are they?

Depends how you read the headlines I suppose, for the UK headlines:

Property prices start to fall Suggests prices are beginning to fall.

House price growth about to end Suggests the party for HPI is over.

Landlords' repayment woes Suggests a market driver, BTL, is no longer driving.

Housing market set to cool next year Suggests buying at the top now might not be a good idea.

Flat prices slump by 11 per cent in one... Say no more.

House price revival starts to flag Suggests the party is over.

Overall, not bad bearish posts. Enough to rattle the Bulls. We haven't seen that much "bad news" for awhile all in one day.

As you say, it depends on how you read them. Most of these seem to be saying that HPI is over. That is exactly what I forecast and hope for. But I don't regard that as bearish of bullish.
