Market Close: 04.13.07
I know that anecdotal information is passingly worthless--but like good gossip, far be it for me to let that stop me.
Local carpet contractor says that business is slower than he's ever seen it (he's been in the business for many, many years). Neighbor who works in transportation--no body is shipping anything.
So, from my small corner of the world some passing tidbits.
Today's market strength is a bit of a surprise. It is worrisome that energy stocks and gold are so strong. Partly due to a weak dollar and partly due to inflation worries.
