    Clem shared — “Indian PM Modi has announced a total lockdown of India for 21 days to stop the virus. Though much of this has already occurred demand wise it is another hit to global demand … Means 17.5% of the world’s population., 1.3 billion people in lockdown … India is also responsible for 5% of global oil demand, 4% for metals and 4-5% of global GDP. Oil demand in 2019 was 4.7 million barrels per day.”

    and prayers extend to my brothers & sisters across the waters … well educated, kind, gentle, spiritual & great people 8)[/i][/size][/color]


    DOW +1776 – Congress becomes patriotic rather than partisan 😆

    [color=purple][size=5]#45 — “I’d like to re-open by EASTER

    And had same thought a few days ago myself
    at least for very small groups is least affected areas
    as timing could not be better as Easter/Spring represent “new birth” 8)

    But only in “fly-over” country where safe as a start — Not NYC or Seattle :sick:
    maybe with youngest folks allowed to go back 1st (20-40)
    and with social distancing, super-hygiene & active testing?

    And while I even agree with some critique — that it might be “too soon”
    it’s good to express goals & hope for better future ahead

    and also USA will MASS PRODUCE cheap testing HOME DIY kit for all
    That was South Korea’s great solution 8)[/size][/color] 🙂

    Virus is very dangerous still in USA — as our free ability to travel spreads virus more than blocking ports

    [color=purple][size=5][i]Good WED morning to all … and appears around midnight a done-deal on $2T relief package
    Still like earlier in week — it aint over til it’s over – lol

    Huge U/E package (4 months worth for layoff victims), Airlines help, etc.
    Futures were up close to +400 and now down some — as more bad news comes in around world
    Today may be a “sell on news” day
    I believe there are FAR MORE infected folks than showing up in “official counts” & USA is spiking hard
    but with lower death counts on statistical basis[/i][/size][/color]

    [size=5][b]EARLY SUMMARY of what is in $2T relief package


    DOW +580 – Senate should pass bill in afternoon & send to House of Rep. for their approval

    Super Harley

    First time for a long time two massive up days back to back

    Focus on Record Initial jobless claims Tomorrow

    After Canada announced almost 1 million jobless claims yesterday all the chatter hs been how big America’s will be. Estimates balance out at 1,5 million and 4 million at Citigroup.

    Mass layoffs are coming from the mandated shutdown and are going to be huge.

    Ohio reported daily claims from Sunday-Thurs of 140K claims compared to 5K in the same period a week earlier.

    California governor Newsome said 1 million people in the state have filed for unemployment claims this month.

    [color=red][size=5][b]Good THURSDAY morning to ALL … wishing all a good & SAFE day 🙂
    Senate passed $2T bill & will be sent to HOUSE for voice vote – and maybe a voice in wilderness will be heard :woohoo:
    if anyone “objects” in partial attendance at House – the a full roll call & everyone has to fly
    May even occur to work in more PORK & special interest items & even way for insiders to manipulate markets :whistle:

    Still DOW futures down on “sell on news” type day — but improved some after U/E results came in

    3.2 MILLION added to U/E but we are all locked into isolation in homes — so ECON stats will be off the charts
    USA will soon be #1 in world in TOTAL# — but fewer lethal cases on a statistical basis … there are MILLIONS worldwide likely infected but untested — as we now live like in SCI-Fi movie :ohmy:

    P.S. The hound & I watched last night — wow, highly educational & works in COVID-19 attributes constantly 8)


    [size=5][i]ROFL – QUOTE OF DAY from caller on “right-wing” talk show
    (Mike Gallaghar in background while working) :lol:[/i][/size]


    [b][color=teal][size=5]– WAGES for even those NOT working – lol
    — No toilet paper, towels, hand sanitizer to be found
    — Fewer plastic straws & bags blowing in the wind
    — No beef, chicken, or meat in stores (for the vegans out there)
    — No travel in our gas-guzzlin’ cars — as we’re all locked down
    — No planes in the sky
    — Far less OIL being burned
    — we finally got #45 and company under control now [/size][/color][/b]


    DOW +1040 for $2T “green new deal” 😆
