The biggest news this past week is that the government reopened for business.  Now this may just be a three-week reprieve; so, who knows how the various markets will react.  This morning, I can see the stock market is down once more; and generally ignoring any celebrations.

The 10-year yield is nearing its one year low; and the FED is appearing to more careful with their overall approach due to the fear of leading us into a recession.

That’s it for this week.  As always, feel free to give me a call with any of your strategic financing needs.
