I remember a few years ago one of our columnists wrote about the wisdom of using less toilet paper to save money. We haven't really embraced that concept at my house, but we have been eating in a lot more (that may have more to do with loving our new kitchen than with a desire to save money, but the savings are a wonderful side effect). When it comes to cutting costs, you do what you can when you need to, right? So why not change to a smaller type font before printing anything, as a way to save on paper (it's good for the environment, too)? That's j

FOX BUSINESS: Markets Flatline on Mixed Data, Euro. June 30th., 2010

There's No Business Like FOX Business Wall Street bounced off its lows and alternated between gains and losses Wednesday morning as a gloomy ADP report on private-sector job growth was offset by a more upbeat regional report and a rallying euro. Today’s Markets As of 10:30 a.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.72 points, or 0.03%, to 9867.73, the Standard & Poor's 500 rose 1.74 points, or 0.17%, to 1042.98 and the Nasdaq Composite picked up 6.89 points, or 0.33%, to 2142.30. The FOX 50 dropped 0.40 points, or 0.05%, to 761.33. In a reversal of the news flow for much of this year, upbeat overseas news on the European banking system was overshadowed by the gloomy labor headlines on the domestic economy. However, the bearish data may have already been factored into the beaten-down markets, especially considering Tuesday’s 268-point plunge. “There’s a fairly large disconnect between what the economists are looking for and what the ma

RTTNews: Daily Market Analysis : Weak Jobs Data May Lead To Lackluster Session On Wall Street. June 30th., 2010

Daily Market Analysis Wed Jun 30 09:26 2010   Jun 30, 2010 Weak Jobs Data May Lead To Lackluster Session On Wall Street - RTTNews Daily Market Analysis The major U.S. index futures are pointing to modestly lower opening on Wednesday, with the early enthusiasm reflected by a modest gain by the futures evaporating following the release of ADP's private sector employment report. The report showed that the private sector added fewer than expected jobs in June. Although markets may take cues from the direction of oil prices and the ISM-Chicago's manufacturing purchasing managers' index, some buying may not be ruled out, given the oversold levels.

Wonkbook : Bank fee replaced with other bank fees; a utilities-only carbon price? June 30th., 2010

    Wonkbook: Bank fee replaced with other bank fees; a utilities-only carbon price? In a last-ditch attempt to secure Scott Brown's vote, FinReg conferees have scrapped a $19 billion bank fee intended to pay for the bill's implementation and replaced it with TARP money and a hike in FDIC fees. That means small banks, not just large banks and large hedge funds, will be on the hook for implementation. Meanwhile, a White House summit on climate policy ended without agreement, but with Obama reiterating a commitment to carbon pricing and various senators -- including, crucially, Olympia Snowe -- moving towards a utilities-only cap-and-trade bill. Elena Kagan had a calm first day of testimony, and did offer some insight into how she'd judge different issues. Oh, and the Supreme Court ruled that the McCain-Feingold Act's ban on "soft" money campaign expenditures is constitutional. It was a busy day. Look forward, the Senate is going to try
