    Market way up, AGNC down. WTF???

    It is not that hard to 'run' a correlation study.

    If u hv a spreadsheet program that accepts (will input 'CSV" values [comma seperated values] it is very easy.

    Within the Microsoft enviornment (spelling?)__u download from Yahoo historical data in "CSV".

    Now open Excell (or equivalent). Create a spreadsheet.

    You just hv 2 choose which parameter is better 2 b horizontal versus vertical.

    Copy and paste your downloads in2 columns and rows.

    Now apply the 'Correl' function__to calculate the correlation between your column & row__or row & column.

    As a side note__we hear all the time "talking heads" verbousing (spelling?) about a correlation between different asset classes. I encourange all to 'run' their own correlation analysis. You may be surprised by the results.

    """"Gold & Oil go down if the US$$ dollar increase?""""

    """"The Renimbi goes up if the US$$ decrease?""""

    Traesuries increase when 'Junk Bonds" decrease?""""

    It is eaier than ever B4 to run an analysis.



    It is not that difficult.
