Weren't you glad to hear that the IMF has revised the world growth expectations upwards for 2012? This was yesterday, saying the global growth, was now likely to be 3.5 percent, against 3.3 percent estimated earlier.
The DOW Index has been up, above 13,000, and having gone up nearly 200 points yesterday, is likely to head for 13,400 for April. The near 200,000 jobs for March indicate the U.S. is on track in the Recovery, with signs that the Housing market there has probably bottomed out and is showing signs of a pick up. Bank of America and Merrill Lynch have stated that they are following policies in their mortgage lending to help the houseowners retain their homes where-ever possible.
The stockmarkets in Asia have been strongly up, bolstered by the confidence shown by the Reserve Bank of India in its cut in the repo rate by 50 basis points. This will be passed onto the consumers, and that augers well for the Indian economy.
Britain seems to have everything going for it, except for a strong public relations exercise perhaps. I believe the FTSE will bounce upwards some time soon.
