It was really done to make the recovery faster, just have to ride the rollercoaster until it's done. Worst case is that we ride until the vaccine is fully deployed. That would suck.
Yes, it would suck.

Estimates are at a year (rolleyes) that the ‘cure’ for this overrated headcold gets dispersed.

Meanwhile, some people are recovering on thier own.

Im in buy mode. If it makes people (idiots) feel better by going chicken little into a handwringing hysteria, fine by me.

Don’t believe the made a breakthrough on vaccine click bait. If it was developed fast most likely it would be worse than the disease.

they still don’t have a vaccine for SARS 17 years ago.

You are incorrect about there being no SARS vaccine, China used one in 2004. SARS never got big enough to justify mass immunization.

Israeli's already in stage 1 testing with a covid-19 vaccine, they have a more streamlined process.

LOL, no that was the stock crashing at the height of the Great Recession. I know the Feds loaned them money that was paid off in the last few years. But, that it is still hard to imagine they stayed alive.

Unless I’m mistaken, they manage the pension fund for Congress and Senate. They were never going down.

So with all the selling......

Where are the fund managers going to put the cash $$$. ? They aren't going to attract clients by just sitting in a less than 1% money market.

Sure its a good bet to stay on the sidelines.... (for now or maybe even all of March), but whats the next step ahead? Where is the next influx of funds going? What sector is it going to be?

Funds managers are always under pressure to beat the Indexes.. ... They are all lost now.

Day traders will be going nuts on the volatility.

Here we go!! I personally think the market will leg down another 10 or 15% before a bottom gets made.

I'm just sitting here shaking my head...up 1300 points one day, down 500 the next, then up 1100, now down 750.

I have said this before and I'll say it again...people do more harm than good (in general) with everything. Whether it be panicking and dropping stocks, driving like morons, etc. Whattya gonna do? LOL
