Stocks finish Q1 flat

A bit of 'window dressing' today for the end of the March quarter saw the market finish the trade up nicely by 0.5% or so.

But overall, the market was flat for the first quarter.

Still, not the epic collapse and "Dow below 9,000" predicted by our American forecasting friends...

Markets almost appear to be in limbo, patiently waiting for the taper Stateside and whether this will see the markets correct downwards sharply.
