f we put 2009 in a time capsule and go di-rectly from 2008 to 2010, just think what wewould have missed in 2009. The highlights of2009 should really begin with the lowlights. Infact, the lowlights of 2009 were multi-faceted.They appeared across the financial landscapesimilar to weather patterns leading up to aperfect storm. In this perfect storm, the hous-ing market bubble reached its pinnacle anddropped like a stone. The torrent of losses felllargely on Wall Street, washing away years ofprofits from the purchase of subprime loans.The tide of losses kept rising until the finan-cial industry was shaken at its foundation.Legendary names like Lehman Brothers, BearStearns, and AIG drowned under a tsunamiof debt. The banking system was a ship thatwas sinking fast until the federal governmentcame to the rescue. The Federal Reserve didwhat it had to do, pouring billions of dollarsinto the banking system. The stock market,led by the Dow Jones Industrial Average andother financial indexes went down like the Ti-tanic. Both Main Street and Wall Street alikewere left stunned by the bad news, losses,and bankruptcies. People everywhere wereasking, “How could this have happened?”Perfect storms take time to develop, happenquickly, and in their aftermath leave a trailof destruction. The perfect storm left manypeople homeless and jobless, while causingthe federal debt to swell. The loss of jobs willtake longer to rebuild than New Orleans af-ter Hurricane Katrina. General Motors stockhas no value, and Chrysler is a penny stock.The year 2009 will also be remembered likethe movie,
The Day the Earth Stood Still 
. Themoney froze like Ted Williams. There was nomovement, except redemptions and internalcalculations of losses. IPOs went MIA.The buzz words of 2009 became “stimulus”and “bailout” and all the money that the gov-ernment could print. The micro-cap stockmarket became an orphanage where alladoptions were cancelled and at best post-poned. They say money talks, but the micro-cap market became empty like the streets of Anchorage, Alaska on a January evening. Thedisappearance of investment capital createda very lonely atmosphere in which lenders andfunders vanished.Somehow we remain standing, shaky perhapsand teetering on the abyss. Many of us arewet, some drenched, and some washed out.Incredibly the spirit gauge is turning higher forthe better. Although 2009 has been a horribleyear for most, the worst appears to have beenaverted. The perfect storm is ending, althoughthere are still some lingering clouds ahead.There are many silver linings including gold.Thankfully you made it through the storm! Wewelcome the opportunity to share many ofthese positive stories with you on our futurepages.
