Thanks for the comments.
So, unless I misunderstood something, it sounds like everything that has been observed/commented on here is just the "recipe" for the next several months.
I got thinking about the politics more today as the events unfolded. The NFP numbers didn't help things either, but seems the time is about right for Dx to start back sliding to get everything where they want it by election time !!!!!
I like to think the Fed. can remain relatively independent and objective, but they know full well who holds the "butter knife" !!!!
On Target expanding in Canada - could be interesting. From what I can see they are a first class outfit.
One thing I just don't comprehend, but maybe it's just Gov't at it's best as Wayne might say. If Canada is going to "encourage" cross boarder shopping by raising the amount of what can be brought back, doesn't it seem a little silly to also require that they spend that much time in the US also spending/paying even more for rooms and meals.
