if you read www.sfomag.com the traders in commodities don't exactly like the idea of tighter regulation. my guess is it will come anyway. especially hedge fund trading techniques. look for the Dow to correct by about 10% in early January 2010 due to poor retail sales at holiday time. why? too many are getting laid off to buy things at Christmas ( unemployment will hover about 10%). so the outlokk for recovery is not all that rosy. just becaus the Dow hit 10,000 is not all the good a sign for recovery. there is also a second round of real estate foreclosures coming about January,2010 with the folks that got ARM's . foreclosures will make the outlook all that more bleak. they tell me they are fighting over having 'tent cities" for the homeless in Florida due to the foreclosures. harkens back to the shanty town's of the 1930's

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
