Well, whaddya know...futures are lock limit UP instead of down for a change...that's right...futures have circuit breakers during non-regular trading hours for big UP as well as big down moves....time for bed.

Well I was dead nuts wrong for a day anyways....no way to time anything anyways...

People aren't going to take and put that stimulus money in the market tho...it'll be toilet paper or cigarettes or booze or pot...

Long term....this is so dangerous....

If anybody listened and bailed around 2800, don't touch this market again with a 10-foot pole. There is no telling how low it will go and there will be NO appreciable "V" shaped recovery or quick snapback.

We're digging ourselves the deepest hole we've ever seen, and yet people just want to dig even deeper...have to get away from that virus!!!

Forget about the failed businesses and the massive amounts of unemployed people the longer this goes on...

What about what the gov't is doing in terms of monetary policy? What kind of hole are they digging?? They were in a giant hole before.

No way this doesn't take 10 to 20+ years to fix in the end...

I think everybody will know when we hit bottom in the market this time around. There will be no mistaking it. We're not even close...UNLESS there is a major turnaround in current policy, which will never happen.

I hope I'm wrong, but I know I'm not.

No wonder the Democrats want nothing to do with winning the upcoming presidential election. It's becoming clear now...

there will be a decent bounce around S+P 2000. the amount of that bounce will give us a pretty decent clue as to how much more this thing will fall. the one thing for sure is that we are at the end of the 40 year bull market in treasury bonds.

as i said before, this place was going bad before he got in, he has just accelerated the process with a small chance of digging us out of our problems.
for a while, his ideas looked like they had some type of chance of working. at least he went to the plate swinging away.

with Trumps personal assets, he must be close to broke or worse by now.

Which is probably why his tone towards the problem has changed from it being "a hoax" , to it being a"National Emergency".

Not knocking the man for it. It's the way everybody reacts ," all is well until it affects me."
