Well, we are saying goodbye to 2008 today and everyone is looking forward to 2009. Especially after these last few months. Every New Years Eve the traders on the floor of the NYSE get together and sing a song of hope for the coming year. They do this in the hope that the next year will bring prosperity to themselves as well as to our country. This has been a tradition since the 1930’s.
So in that tradition I play that same song here and look forward to 2009 in the hope that these last few months of 2008 may be the end of the beginning.
Happy New Year everyone!
