To those of you south of the border, I hope you enjoy your nation's birthday. Today the American markets and blogging community will be taking the day off, just like we did up here on Tuesday. There are only a handful of days during the year when the Canadian and American financial systems find themselves at odds with each other, and it's always interesting to see how one market moves when the other is closed for business.
Light up the sky, enjoy time with family and friends, and don't let any bloody-minded Canadians get to you with their stubborn insistence on spelling neighbor with a "u".
Happy Fourth Of July.
