I think this is going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Supply chains are in dissarray around the world.

^ I agree. It isn't all about the markets that will suffer but what is worse for all of us is this coronavirus. This isn't a good thing for the world and the losses in markets dont even compare to losses of life. A sad thing.

I am 64 years old. I believe that this could be the biggest event in my life.

I can sure understand the DIS but DAL scares the daylights out of me. I have a hard and fast rule to NEVER invest in airlines. It only takes one 'incident' to bankrupt a company. as I learned with Valu-jet in 1996. I think I would consider Boeing before I would an actual airline. How much more bad news is there in BA ??

QCOM maybe. TSM, AMAT, or INTC maybe.

I don't think we will see negative rates.

I am guessing you are referring to Judy Shelton. What is your objection to her ?

I wouldn't call it the biggest event in my life.........that would be the birth of my daughter smile and a couple other incidents.

But it is right up there close to the top.

I made my first trade in 1961 and have been in the market ever since.
I survived the crash of 1987, 1989. 1999, 2008 and the flash crash of 2010 ( that one was a lot of fun !! )) When the market drops a thousand points and a trillion dollars in 36 minutes and then reverses.........I like it !!

Things like these days can be depressing and worrisome but in the long run fear is your friend. Don't be afraid of volatility. It is the norm. Up until the last week volatility has been unnaturally low. This, while admittedly extreme, is just a reversion to the mean. We have lived through some records in the past few days and are still standing

Grab opportunity by the throat !

^ true. I don't listen to all the noise and don't look at my accounts in times like this. If this down spiral is more then a correction then it might be a year or two before be get back to the high. A person has to be in it for the long haul or not at all. IMO

^ Lol. Yah, I get it. Like you said, you seen many hard times in the markets since 1961, I started in 1980 and seen all those same tough times as you did. A guy lives long enough you will always see better days, any way that has been the history of markets.

Talk to someone and there are still many around that lived through the depression and WW II they would probably laugh at our whining.

I think DAL is dropping too far and when(if?) things turn around and people start traveling again the stock will climb quickly back to near all time highs. It's a gamble, nut I like my chances and will pick up a little each time it drops.
I do thing QCOM and DIS are better picks at these prices and I'm adding to them, but I don't want all my eggs in one basket.

and yep, I am talking about sheldon. If she is the one, I think the fed will actually be run by trump and nothing will be done without considering the effect it will have on trump's numbers.

Is there anyway the virus can arrive on packages that are shipped from places most effected by it?

You have to ask?

She advocates for sound money practices.

Sheldon hated low interest rates and was critical of them when Obama was in office and then advocated for the for trump. She used to also be a big advocate for open borders. And I think it's a biyt late to return to the gold standard.

She will be loyal to trump above all else-it's why he wants her. That's a bad thing for the country.
