“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
“The dollar's cyclical factors are waning but they haven't banished totally. The market is keen on switching to structural dollar stress factors but it's too early -- we also had strong housing figures from the U.S. last week.”
