Thread: Rod's Account Talk

    Blue Roadster...New England Journal of Medicine had a decent write up on COVID-19 and links to other, historical, articles concerning corono-virus. Over the past week I have seen lots of information trickling out of the think tank labs which is shedding light on this COVID-19. One thing to note, the size of this virus has also been published and it appears to be in the 80-120 nanometer range (plus or minus). Very interesting as most viruses are much smaller.

    I agree that this can not be compared to typical flu strains... it seems to have longer viability on surfaces but also appears to be very weak and breaks down quickly when exposed to decon protocols. This is great news for our medical providers as long as they keep proper PPE and decon protocols in effect.

    Please keep in mind that stats regarding mortality should be taken in context. For example, stats on total flu cases are estimated each year because a very small portion of individuals are ever tested for it. Opposite side is, for right now, almost all instances of COVID-19 being reported are tested. At some point there will be extrapolations based on population and the mortality percentage will go way down.

    USA's current COVID-19 death rate is @ 1.8%. Nearly double the seasonal flu death rate.

    As of now in the USA:

    3,782 cases

    69 dead

    The airlines have requested funding. American Airlines is currently up 1% in anticipation of the WH approving that funding. So, perhaps a quick profit can be made here.

    WHEW! Sure glad I did not go through with that IFT!

I still sense that we will have some up days next week... thinking that Monday might be one of them with a stimulus package announcement either late today or over the weekend.

    Will I regret that I did not make that IFT? Or will I be relieved?

    We shall see.

    Man... when a bottom is finally put in, just imagine how much of a monster those rallies are going to be. Don't want to be on the sidelines then! We've got to be at least 30% down from the Dow's high. It will more than likely drop at least another 20%. Remember, it dropped 54% during 2007-2008. It could very well exceed that. I expect it to exceed that.

    Lightbulb Re: Rod's Account Talk

    For those of you familiar with these inverse ETF's...

    FAS 52-week low is 24.85. Today's close @ 24.86.

    FAZ 52-week high is 59.88. Today's close @ 56.19.

    It'll be interesting to see if they bust through their low and high.

    Question Re: Rod's Account Talk

    Still sound far-fetched? It's entering the conversation now on CNBC.

    Question Re: Rod's Account Talk

    So far, Mr. Market isn't trading wildly in either direction. We haven't seen this in quite some time. Makes one wonder if at least a temporary bottom is in?

    I jumped 20% back into C yesterday to take advantage of the cliff. We'll see what happens but I might start nibbling back in as this plays out over the coming weeks.

    I just nibbled in on some FAS @ 23.17. Just wanted to buy some at these low prices and see where it goes today. It's been bouncing around this range. Going below it. Who knows how its day will end.

    I jumped into G back in early Feb. I'm ready to start taking advantage of these low prices. Picked up BX, ABC, AMZ, and MSFT yesterday at record lows..I'm happy.
