The author ponders on the real outlook for the metals market in 2008 in the U.S. He recounts the casual comments from attendees at the Metals Service Center Institute's Carbon Conference in February in which majority of them envisioned a strong start during the year. He also reflects on the assurance of Eli Lustgarten of Longbow Research that the economy is not terrible as what others perceived and if there is a recession, poor liquidity will be the reason.
