Changes coming to processing U.S. Savings Bonds, U.S. Treasury to begin clearing bonds electronically in April

MARKET COMMENTARY
for the month of Apr. 2012
With the arrival of spring, hope is in the air for the U.S. economy. Indeed, optimism has been building throughout the winter thanks, in good part, to a winter season that had far fewer "dark" days than usual. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this was the fourth warmest winter on record, dating back 117 years. Aside from lifting the spirits of the cold huddled masses, mild weather brings out early shoppers, stimulates construction and generates sales of goods and services linked to outdoor activities. Put simply, the glow of warmth was at least partly responsible for the stronger-than-expected economic reports in recent months.  + READ MORE
