With European financial uncertainty continuing, and fears of a global recession, investors were "dumping" everything in the stock market today...

The beneficiary was US Treasuries.  Investors grabbing up US Treasury investments dropped the yields downward.  Commodities were hit hardest, with oil, metals and other products taking a beating.  While many investment experts don't necessarily see the US dropping into a European style recession, they do point to a lack of leadership in Washington, and uncertainty about the President's ability to show that his Administration knows what it's doing when it comes to markets, fianancial matters and the economy.
