I just can't figure why PT is down. All the news about power problems and it's still goes down? What is the reason. I know if industrial uses goes then PT goes down but is it that much? Any ideas? Just wondering

Maybe people were liquidating commodities along with stocks to cover April 15th Tax return payments, and 1st quarter estimated tax deposits for 2008. The markets are not generally accomodative to those needing to raise cash. Notice the rallies that generally or historically prevail on the 16th. Oklabrow.
