Looks like the market is taking another plunge today.
Emerging pattern of up one day down the next.

Yesterday, my Spousal Unit was taking an inventory - of sorts - referring to the loaded freezer, pantry, dry goods, game aplenty on the hunting property, etc., in her "preparation" for a long and drawn out "social distancing" effort, as well as first hand experience from the Publix grocery store shelves having been stripped bare by the local weenies.
I didn't even look up from 3-straight days of bleary eyes doing our 2019 Taxes. I already know the Tax Man cometh and Death isn't too far behind.
Watch the DemoCRAPs. Something is afoot and the Media is hyping this CRAOPLAvirus as cover.

I agree with Ole Timer. I am getting to be a geezer so I guess that's why I still remember how my parents and grand parents lived. The real depression taught them some lessons that most living today have forgotten. I haven't. We had pantry's full of food and back ups for our backups. We repaired most things instead of throwing them away. Lots of people made most of their own clothes, darned socks and cooked from scratch and grew gardens.
Nowadays FEMA, Homeland Security and others, tell us we should have at least 3-5 days of food and water on hand. Storm warning - Button up and ware a hat. Its going to snow 2 to 3 inches. Most of our people are helpless and clueless. You can't rely on anyone helping you, but yourself. Pay attention to whats going on and learn from it. When this is over shore up your weaknesses. Do what makes sense. Good luck.

The stock market is being affected by the Saudi oil war, as well as the flu panic caused by the MSM. I'm sure the government bureaucracy will over reach as it always does during any crisis, and the MSM will throw as much gasoline on the situation as humanly possible. As always, people should ALREADY have plenty of basics for emergencies, such as food, water, supplies, plenty of cash, and plenty of ammo for their firearms, especially if you live in a city or populated area where you may need to keep either the slobbering, ravenous mobs at bay, or even the police in a "Katrina" type situation. Waiting until a disaster strikes is a poor time to find out you cannot protect your family or community from either the mobs, or the government itself.
Times like these are why I am glad I live in the sticks...people in herds can indeed be stampeded over a cliff as easily as cattle....

My view of the stock market TODAY is not the same as when it was developed; as a place invest in companies, raise capitol and have prices reflect underlying value or potential. Today the market is a large gambling venture where bets are placed on how prices will go. Most of the trades are by large funds or blocks of money not looking for long term investment but quick turn profit on a price move. I actually think it might be a good time to buy in but you might have to ride out a further fall before the rebound. It is still a risk however.

During the 15 minute timeout the decision will be made to close the markets until further notice. Tuesday the run on the banks will begin and all **** will being to slowly break loose. Wednesday the banks will most likely close before noon until further notice. All ATMS will shortly run out of cash and will not be refiled. We will be moving away from cash most likely after all of this settles down. I also look to Wednesday to be when all non critical government offices to be closed. By Friday the mail will have stopped. After an insane weekend we will see curfews enforced nation wide and by March 24 we will see a "Medical Martial Law".
