Orlando MoneyShow

I gave a couple of talks last week at the World MoneyShow in Orlando. I have spoken at this event numerous times in the past. My impression is that attendance at the MoneyShow provides a good, albeit imperfect, indicator of investors' interest in the markets. To my untrained eye, attendance looked strong. In fact, I heard registrations were up about 12% from last year's event. There were also plenty of sponsors and exhibitors around. Of course, strong interest isn't too surprising given the double-digit gains in all stock market indexes last year.
