MPI and other market reports

What a week! Huge leaps and falls, then a quiet close. Gold plunged right along with the Dow as did crude oil, as the snippet below from the WSJ shows. But look at how low oil has gotten!

Gold 1573.10 7.60
Crude Oil 80.15 1.95  

The MPI, meanwhile is hanging on – today’s close was about twice as high as the DOW’s close, so we guess the monkeys can be given some credit for a bit of good stock-picking.
