    [color=purple][i][b]GOOD MONDAY MORNING to all … a wee bit of selling of WALL STREET :ohmy:
    DOW is off 200 points … And concern abounds at record level U/E, DEBT, and depression like ECON stats

    Statistically, I’ve been watching day-to-day virus STATs & indeed see tiny bit of improvement in USA
    Russia is severe outbreak mode … And as Southern hemisphere moves out of summer they may increase
    COVID-19 should follow SARS life cycle pattern (which is a little longer plateau at peak than regular flu)
    Heat, Light, and humidity factors impact SARS capability to live “in the wild”

    LET THERE BE LIGHT in days ahead to better mitigate virus spread
    as our creator & greats minds of mankind will defeat this germ one day 8) [/b][/i][/color]

    In memory of HALL OF FAME rocker who passed on this weekend


    President Trump says “I’m not interested” in reopening phase 1 trade deal with China,

    Trump is speaking from the White House

    “I’m not interested” in reopening the trade deal with China,

    Goldman Sachs says US equity investors are ignoring Risk

    Goldman Sachs US equity a note

    Expects the S&P500 to be higher at year end, around 3,000 *its at 2930 now so hardly a big call). as see the coronavirus scare receding and a rebound for the economy.

    However its says in the next 3 months it will bring a near 20% decline, targeting around 2,400 in a decline triggered by the following
    concerns and risks:

    1. Infection rates could increase outside worst-hit NY as states reopen their economies
    2 A drawn-out economic rebound
    3 Major US banks losing profits for loan-loss reserves.
    4 The labor market is now being hit harder and thus additional reserve will be required
    5 More companies will cancel stock-buybacks. Buybacks have been a major source of demand (manipulation perhaps) towards higher prices.
    6. Companies cutting dividend payments and also capex spending (which will slow corporate growth ahead, oil and gas is a good example here.)
    7 November presidential election policies (especially on corporate tax – Democrats could reverse Republican’s corporate profit-friendly tax )
    8 US-China tensions if Trump and other world leaders turn more aggressive per Trump’s China approach
