Who would have thought this year's market would be even more volatile than last year's? Speaking of volatility, the market analysts for KFRM will return for the shoot-out and provide insight to these illogical markets. The "Wall Street" affect, fund money, and world production will all certainly be discussed in an entertaining and educational format that will place Pete Loewen, Tom Leffler, Chris Havercamp and Mark Gold in the KFRM corral for the "Market Shoot-Out V". Last year the pistols came out blazing leaving some with a ringing in their ears, if the markets have your ears ringing don't miss the marketing event of the year.
