The reason the market jumped is because the Fed announced "new dramatic funding actions" whatever that means.

I think the market expects more --- announcement is just expanding its repo program (provides very short-term collateralized liquidity).

I think I'll stick to the horses. Less volatility over there. Plus...I like to know why I am losing.

That's right...instant results. It shouldn't take an "investor" TEN YEARS to realize how ignorant he is.

Just so you know.... Dividend's don't mean anything. My father was the same way... always looking for dividends. "it has a drip program"

you want to know where the money they're distributing is coming from. The realitiy is... not many people even look at financial statements... and if they do... simply look for the bottom line and say "wow" dividends.

What's more important... is where that money is coming from. Why they are able to pay money out.


Think of financial statements as PP's. if you're not reading them... you're no better then the shmuck at otb betting his birthday and wheeling it with the date and time of his last winning bet. That's my opinion though.

At current... if you're not worried about quantative easing 4&5 and the feds balance sheet... you should be worried. these are lines in the sand... they tell you how far things have gone.

I think the ES needs to take out the low of 2340 before we can get a serious rally.

Yep, thatís at least another 160 points to go.

Now we're back to pre-Fed pop. Nothing but a good old-fashioned short-squeeze that was...

It's going to be an interesting final 30 minutes.

Hey RR...let me ask you down here where it's a bit, shall we say, safer.

What's your take on the whole Tom Hanks + wife's COVID-19 deal...I know you must have an angle on this. I'm interested in hearing it, surprisingly enough.

Are the 'Q' folks angling it this way? He's gonna "die" from this virus, thereby whipping people into a "past the point of no return frenzy" on this whole thing...but he's secretly using this to fake his own death to get out from under that whole "shadow..." You know the one I'm talking about...
