"The Stock Market was in a 2 week Downtrend" that is about to go into a major 'Reversal to the Upside' Why you ask? The bulk of the earnings season has started today and will go into full steam ahead for the next two weeks. So far earnings have only beat estimates by 5% overall but that is about to change & should go much higher now within the next 14 days which will give a much better picture of the market.
Also helping stocks going into the next two weeks is the falling US dollar which is making bonds unattractive compared to stocks coupled with rising inflation.
Last Wednesday, the Commerce Department announced that U.S. retail sales rose 0.4% in March. Excluding vehicle sales, core retail sales rose 0.8% in March. In the past 12 months, retail sales are up 7.1%, so consumer spending remains surprisingly strong, and this is despite higher gasoline prices.

New rules likely to raise price of rare earths
By Zhang Qi (China Daily)Partial of article below:
According to a JPMorgan report released on April 11, the prices of domestic rare earths continue to rise as China cuts back on illegal mining. Since March 28, domestic prices for cesium have risen by 49 percent to $19.76 a kilogram, lanthanum by 75 percent to $14.32, and neodymium by 23 percent to $99.75.
Rare earths is the collective name for 17 elements used in high-tech industries, including the manufacture of wind turbines, hybrid-car batteries, missile guidance systems and other advanced electronics.
China, which possesses one-third of the world's rare-earth reserves and provides more than 90 percent of the world's supplies, has seen environmental damage from the mining and processing and depletion of the resource. Because of this, the government implemented a number of measures to improve the sustainable development of the industry.
The Ministry of Environmental Protection issued new industry standards in March to reduce pollution and regulate the scattered industry.
Under those standards, a liter of production wastewater may contain no more than 15 milligram (mg) of the pollutant ammonia nitrogen, reduced from the current 25 mg.
The new standards also include regulations on emission quantities of radioactive elements and phosphorus.
Wu Xiaoqing, vice-minister of environmental protection, previously said that companies will have to increase their investment in pollution treatment facilities.
He estimated that the industry will have to spend at least 1.5 billion yuan ($228 million) on building sewage treatment facilities, which will incur an annual operational cost of 280 million yuan, calculated on the basis of 150,000 tons of rare-earth production a year.
"The government will allow two years for rare-earth companies to upgrade their techniques. If they don't meet the standards, they will be banned from the industry," said Huang Xiaowei, vice-director of the National Engineering Research Center for Rare Earth Materials and a professor at the Beijing General Research Institute for Nonferrous Metals.
The effect on rare-earth companies depends on how the government implements the policy, she said.
"There are more than 100 rare-earth mining companies scattered across the country. It is difficult to evaluate the impact until the government fully implements the policy," she added.

Interactive Brokers Buries Chinese Reverse Mergers: Announces 100% Margin Increase Submitted by Tyler Durden on 04/11/2011 09:50 -0400
This is the beginning of the end for Chinese reverse mergers. Alas, after having been the single most profitable trade in the market for the past 5 months when Chinese reverse merger frauds would guarantee up to 50% gains in the span of hours after people refusing to drink the kool aid and actually do their homework would expose one after another of these abortions which the flailing domestic exchanges (NYSE and NASDAQ) would gladly list in exchange for much needed fees, the party is coming to an end. Interactive Brokers has just announced that it will hike margin requirements from 50% to 100% over the next 3 days on virtually every single Chinese reverse merger name. Shortly, everyone else will follow through with a comparable increase. Timber ahead... and time to find the next "sure money" shorting scheme. [more]
A 2010 Congressional Research Service report summarized other details of the 1995-1996 government shutdowns, which it said impacted all sectors of the economy. Those included: health and welfare services for military veterans were curtailed; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stopped disease surveillance; new clinical research patients were not accepted at the National Institutes of Health; and toxic waste clean-up work at 609 sites was halted. Other impacts included: the closure of 368 National Park sites resulted in the loss of some seven million visitors; 200,000 applications for passports and 20,000 to 30,000 applications for visas by foreigners went unprocessed each day; U.S. tourism and airline industries incurred millions of dollars in losses; more than 20% of federal contracts, representing $3.7 billion in spending, were affected adversely
Basically the worst hit were Health & Tourism sectors [more]
