    NOTHING but opportunity... And if you check your statements you will see you have the exact same number of shares in whatever holdings you have.

    I'm fumbling for a question here...but is this an apples-to-apples comparison? In other words, are we comparing Covid-19 victims to unvaccinated flu victims? Because the flu vaccine can't always prevent the flu but if I'm not mistaken it generally lessens the severity of the flu if you do get it.

    I hope that makes sense.

    The President saying “look at your 401ks!” Vs. Random voters saying “My 401k is doing great!”...Byoumer special!

    You don't recall that messaging coming from the prior administration too? Just because they communicated it more eloquently ( not hard), it is still the same crap.

    Mortality rate is about 20-30 times higher. Not really a good comparison to look at absolute numbers of fatalities of a virus still in its early stages of spreading vs one that has been camped out in every continent.

    LOL...instead of refuting the argument, you attack the source. Lazy.

    Should be easy to refute...but ...oh...there is a video evidence....ouch....

    Your contention is that Obama mentioning 401k's got Trump elected, yet then I see Trump's twitter account and it's so very confusing...

    First off, no I don't unless you can't distinguish that nuisances exist in any discussion like this.

    More importantly, please don't expect me to explain or support Trump's narrative. You must have me confused with someone else.

    (I don't understand why so many people assume everyone is aligned with one tribe or the other. A lot of us are not)

    Yeah that didn’t age well. Though, the stock market will probably rebound once the coronavirus is less of a threat.

    Massive volume today; probably 3x ave daily vol. And the SPY broke the 200-Day Moving Average. A case could be made for a 20% correction, which takes it down to 275ish, but maybe it can find support at the Oct low around 285. Not good to try to time this bottom.
