Today once again reaffirmed that stock prices have no relationship to the economy. The market news today: (1) Retail sales down; (2)Worse than expected unemployment; (3)Continuing jobless claims increase worse than expected; (4)Business inventories declined; (5)Record decline in household net worth; (6)Lowering of GE credit rating. The major market indices all increased. Tomorrow when the market declines probably 200 plus points, the talking heads will be reporting the 'reasons' why prices declined on the economy. What a farce!
