Economic indicators continue to improve. Housing prices showed their first month-to-month increase in three years. Orders for durable goods have also improved.

On a larger scale, GDP continues to show signs of improvement. In the fourth quarter of 2008, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) contracted at an annual rate of -6.4%. In the first quarter of 2009, that contraction improved to -5.4%. In the latest quarter, it improved substantially to -1.0%.

It is our belief that GDP will be either flat or positive for the current quarter, meaning the end of the recession is likely near. Improvements in unemployment, usually a lagging indicator, will be the final proof that the economy has bottomed.
