    I'm hoping to get some MGM at around $9.

    I like VTI better. It is more diversified. But I don’t think you can go wrong with either. https://investor.vanguard.com/etf/profile/VTI

    Vanguard has a bunch that are worth a look. VTI is pretty good too. VTI has more stocks at its disposal which helps in times like these but VOO has a slightly higher yield.

    So you guys do ETFs over regular funds? Is there a big advantage? I have been buying VTSMX, but maybe should look into the ETF equiv.

    6.6M new jobless claims. And the stock market will probably go up.

    All depends if they were expecting that? What was the average market guess?

    Even with the rotten oil prices, Oil companies have been on a tear as of late.

    Projections were all over the place. It's a guessing game at this point.

    Admiral shares are more similar to a mutual fund. There's a minimum initial investment ($3000). After that, you can invest any amount.
    The fees are a basis point higher for this fund (for VTSAX vs VTI).

    ETFs function like stocks. To invest, you simple buy shares.

    Everyone expects them to bounce back and wants to get in while prices are low. Crude prices are up 10% currently.

    I bought some the middle of march and they are over 40% up since then. Hopefully that isn't a jinx.

    That is the difference, admiral shares require a min in your account and then give you lower fees.

    Smart; my best learning experience has been to start / add positions at the close, not at the open.

    some. I’m not heavy in them but have been putting some “extra” in SCHB “VTI equiv” because the price is right for me. If you like your results in VTSMX keep doing it. It’s a great fund. The expense ratio is a bit higher but ultimately it doesn’t really matter most likely.

    Sounds like the new unemployment is 3MM some. Total claims is 6.6MM. Some are getting confused on the numbers.

    Some media are now trying to compare raw numbers of claims to the great depression raw claims. You can't use those, maybe percentage, we have 3X the population as then.
