In respect for the calamity and suffering in the gulf, I am suspending market analysis for now. I will continue to update the GMI daily. I hope everyone will do their part to come to the aid of our fellow human beings who face almost insurmountable circumstances over the coming months and years. President Lyndon Johnson once said something like, a society’s greatness is judged not by how well some people prosper, but by how well it takes care of the poor and disadvantaged in its midst. May our country have the will and the courage to be great.
