Markets Optimistic Headed Into Easter

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Tokyo ended 1.4% higher with the Nikkei now trading comfortably back above 11,000. Optimism spread to London closing up 0.8% and New York opened up over 70 points on the Dow. Participants are awaiting tomorrow's monthly jobs report. With US equity markets closed for Good Friday, we'll only see the initial reaction in futures markets and will have the weekend to digest the number.

Bloomberg reported yesterday that a plane ticket from New York to Omaha costs $1,433 for the weekend of Berkshire Hathaway's annual meeting while a flight to Paris on the same weekend only costs $1,142. A record 35,000 people attended last year's "Woodstock for Capitalists" and this year is likely the same. The snippets of wisdom spoken from the man himself are often lessons for a lifetime.
