A couple of weeks ago we thought spring was finally here but this past week we were disappointed by the drop in temperatures and a miserable weather. So what do you do over the weekend when it’s raining and cold outside? Well I took the family to visit the Butterflies Go Free event in the Montreal Botanical Garden where you mingle with 1500 very colorful butterflies in a 30C degrees (86 F) greenhouse. It’s like visiting Costa Rica for less than $30 and the kids loved it.
Stock markets have been drifting lower this past week thanks in part to a disappointing start in earnings. Next week will be decisive as 20% of S&P500 companies will be reporting. Will the markets remain bearish for this earning’s season? I guess we’ll know very soon.
