Red to flat the TSX and TSXV continue to slow down with market participation as we slowly slip towards summer. Not too much going on as China has cooled as of late but still with good growth expecting a 7.5% growth rate for 2012. The U.S continues to warm with a number of positive indicators and is only being slowed by overseas markets. Dare I say it? If the U.S economy and consumerism continue a slow steady up trend we might actually have a return of American manufacturing.

Oh that’s right. Anti market and energy Obama still holds office, and the Republicans have some scary alternatives. They really need a third party. If U.S consumerism continues to up trend Canadian manufacturing should also benefit.
