Re: Market crash! We have another Black Monday

that entire speech was drawn out and designed to try to cheer the markets right to the closing bell, with all the CEOs there to smile and say how lovely the free market is, etc etc

trump cares so much more about the Dow Jones and S&P numbers than actually confronting this virus threat. It's madness.

Re: Market crash! We have another Black Monday

I always look at a crash like this: If the market does not recover, and this time really is different, we all are going to have way bigger problems to worry about than what our stupid little stock portfolio is doing. That is precisely the sentiment I have been feeling myself! I will probably look f...

Re: Market crash! We have another Black Monday

I just started matching 401k in the new year at my new job. I'm 35. My thinking is to just ignore this and keep paying into it (its matching up to 5%, so i put 5%), and keep buying buying buying and in 20 or 30 years that will have been a good decision. I have a very tiny bit of capital I'd like to ...

Re: Corona Virus!

We are in Boston. The total lack of testing and prep has me pretty freaked out. I will be WFH starting this week to avoid the public transit. Debating if I'll keep sending kids to their preschool (which is a small one but still).

Re: Corona Virus!

I was starting to freak out a bit, but felt more reassured that the death rate is 0 for > 9 years old (I have two little kids), and mortality rate for most adults < 70 appears to be similar to the regular flu? ~0.2% or something? Unless the numbers I saw are wrong.

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Ugh I feel bad for the people in Chile dealing with all of this. We are beginning to plan our return to Chile in Aug/Sep. We have been in EEUU for my work the last year, considered staying (I am from here), but we both struggle to adjust to living with Gringos, miss family, miss good cheap wine, mis...
