So why is he taking that kind of loss for so long?

If he can lose $45k per day, for a week and a half, he must have a huge portfolio.

Air Canada and VFV are the ones that I am ready to pull the trigger on. Just nervous I will miss the bottom. This will end in good results. Got lots of dry powder and am looking forward to some good returns.

If anyone can read Financial Times, there is supposedly a great article there now, but I am not a subscriber and canít read it. If someone can and doesnít mind copy-pasting, I would greatly appreciate it. I am sure others will too. Here is the article:

Markets are too complacent about coronavirus despite sell-off

Itís thoughts of Nouriel Roubini, aka Dr. Doom.

Thanks.

The DOW is a poor index to track, its the top 60 large US caps. You would want to be in a much broader index fund that tracks the Sp500 instead. Lots to chose from there. Vanguard, Spyder, Blackrock all have good options. Vanguard is probably the cheapest historically but I havenít looked in a while. Another good option in my opinion for broad exposure and good management would be BRK.B.

If a guy is looking for a safe time to get back in focus on the level on the VIX. We need a week or so of it under 20 ish before all clear imo. Watch trading volumes. Wait for the selling pressure to exhaust itself. Be patient. Look back at 2008-09 period, market bottoms take time and donít worry about missing a few points by trying to pick the bottom. This thing could be over next week or stretch over several months. Have some rules and a shopping list ready if you are looking at individual stocks. All just my opinions.

The markets just opened, but the spiral downward continues. It's nice to be sitting on the sidelines watching today.

Watch Amazon if you want to see a wild ride over next few months. China can no longer deliver All the products that Amazon buys and puts into cardboard boxes. Amazon also has be impact on the DOW.

Nice to not have skin directly in the game, but we all are involved indirectly. Bit worrisome.

Expect emergency rate cuts and more helicopter money any day from the US Fed. The bond market is pricing in a major disruption, 10 yr US yields have been getting crushed for days and now sit at 1.25%. Bond markets are better than the stock market at sniffing these things out and are acting like another 1928 or 2008 event is here perhaps?

And Trump must be going nuts after his appointment of the VP yesterday to fight the virus failed to halt the market slide. Meanwhile in Canada we have Truly Clueless slowly crushing the Canadian economy with his lack of leadership, I don't even think the effects of the virus have crossed his little brain yet, to busy trying to not hurt any feelings....Yeah were screwed! Enjoy the elevator ride down.

Appointing Pence as Virus Czar was supposed to calm the markets ? No wonder they are tanking.

This will hurt us all, but at least sitting on cash, I can buy back in and perhaps still make a profit in 2020. And it isn't just the virus we have to worry about, the rail disruptions will add to the pain. This mess could takes months to resolve, so consumer confidence returns to the markets.

I'm in cash but I don't feel particularly safe in the long run. This event could very well be big enough to put banks at risk and potentially cause a big financial reset.

And for those inclined to read too much into this. No I don't think banks are going to collapse in a few days or a month or even a few months. My concern is that this virus will reek havoc on economy for a year or more. The whipsaw battle between containing this virus and maintaining an economy and supply chain is going to be TOUGH based what I've observed over the last month. This virus spreads very efficiently and is more nasty than most are giving it credit for. Interesting to see a bunch of top Iranian officials are now confirmed infected. I foresee some instability in Iran as a lot of their leaders are in the older demographic. Concerning times.
