    Its amazing to watch this market melt down. I am all for free markets and would hate to see some arbitrary government regulation to control market swings but it sure seems like the industry would benefit from some sort of self imposed restraint to keep the market some what stable during times of global crisis. These things always work them selves out and I have no doubt several months from now the market will recover and be a bit stronger. Short term psychologic effects of these swings brings unneeded stress to some and interferes with some short term plans like Selling my 44 so I can get my 55 Pilot House!!!
    Hang on every one

    I called my financial adviser after the first drop... he said relax everything will be fine.... I should have asked what his definition of fine is.. 15%?.... 20%?

    Oh yeah, pretty stupid to try and time the bottom of this one I imagine. I’m still several years from accessing the well so I’m not too concerned. My wife however needs something to obsess over and unfortunately it’s her Schwab account daily balances! She is driving me nuts!! I’ll just go hunker down on the boat and enjoy a beer.

    This will help us acclimate to the new norms that'll come with a Dem victory in 2020.:(

    Don’t worry. Trump will defeat Bernie handily.

    The Coronavirus is being manipulated by short sellers right now. They changed the old long standing circuit breaker we had to stop runs caused by short selling back in 2007. The short sellers are working around the replacement rule put in in 2011...

    Not only am I staying the course, but I spent the afternoon honing my “shopping list”.
    Looking to pick up some good stuff at great discounts. Hopefully I’ll be picking up some bargains in the beginning of the week.

    Apple was down 20% earlier in the day..... Cook was making the network rounds telling us his plants in China are coming on line and everything looks good... they never mentioned his stock drop in the interviews though :)

    Look again. Fox poll says 56% say Trump will be reelected.

    It shouldn't be a surprise Trump is favored to win... he was even chosen as 'most admired man in the world' in 2019. He beat out Gates, Mandela, and even the Pope. Technically he tied for 'most admired' with Obama but just think about it. Some folks thought Obama was a god.....Trump tied god:cool:.

    There's something about Bernie, I like him, even though I don't like his politics and I don't want to see him elected as POTUS.
