LaTeDa hits the road BY TRINA KLEIST Staff Writer

ebbie DeJesus hits the road this week with her new LaTeDa Mobile truck, staging public parties locally on Saturday and Wednesday. DeJesus closed her Mill Street store in April but vowed to return for private parties and showings from her fashion truck — the latest business model in a tough economy where survivors like DeJesus are finding new ways to reach out to customers. (Fashion trucks were featured on the Today Show on June 4, DeJesus noted.) Her truck, about the size of a UPS delivery truck, is a custom creation that evokes both Gold Rush history and a woman’s closet, with tin ceiling tiles and pink and white striped wallpaper.

Stocks surge on bank expectations ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — A report that major central banks would be ready to pump money into the financial system after the Greek elections this weekend gave the stock market a late push higher. The Reuters report said major central banks were preparing for coordinated action if the results of Greek elections on Sunday strain global financial markets. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 155.53 points to close at 12,651.91 Thursday. That’s a gain of 1.2 percent. The Dow jumped 100 points after the report came out then pulled back. Investors are on edge ahead of Greece’s election this weekend because parties opposed to the terms of the country’s financial

bailout could take control of the government. If that happens and the country leaves the euro, many fear the currency union could be torn apart and European banks could fail. The stock market began

fell in May by 0.3 percent, the biggest drop since December 2008. Analysts said the slowdown in price increases could make it more likely that the Fed will announce new steps to boost the economy when it meets next week. Low inflation gives the

Fed more leeway to inject money into the financial system, keep interest rates low and encourage borrowing. “The markets are higher, I think, because there are enough investors who believe that this morning’s data on prices and jobless claims increase the case for more Fed easing as soon as next week’s meeting,� said Clark Yingst, chief market analyst at the securities and banking firm Joseph Gunnar. Yingst said the market could easily switch directions in the coming days.“Traders are just following the trend one way on one day, but are perfectly happy following it the other way the next.� The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose 14.22 points to 1,329.10. The Nasdaq composite gained 17.72 points to 2,836.33.
