 We had an electrical storm here in Fla., and the power surge knocked out my data, main computer and backup. I was without power for a couple of hours and had to use my generator. I can't crunch any numbers and and am using a laptop only for quotes and it's acting sketchy. I'm burning up the telephone and my cellphone getting trades down. Why, of all days, would mother nature send me back to 80's technology. It looks like it's going to be a long night(and longer day tomorrow), the coffee pot is full, and I'm playing Wagner really loud on my Klipsch speakers because it's very apropos. I'm sure my neighbors won't mind as every light on the street is on….which is a major worry indicator as far as I'm concerned.

I'm expecting my computer guy to be over here soon to get me whole, but he's got big customers and I'm at the lower end of his schedule.

In the mean time I am trying to analyze the impact of the drop in shipping costs, but I don't have adequate computer resources.  From memory, I haven't seen such a hit on the Baltic in years. I would think such a decline in shipping rates would have a positive impact on stock indexes, perhaps with a lag. Any suggestions would be welcome.
