    U.S. stock-index futures swooned Thursday as investors worried about coronavirus cases rising again and digested Wednesday’s downbeat economic outlook from the Federal Reserve. The market moves came even as the number of Americans filing for jobless benefits for the first time continued to decline in the most recent week. What’s driving the market? The number of U.S. coronavirus infections passed the two million mark and over 112,000 Americans have died, according to Johns Hopkins University. Despite fewer cases being recorded in some cities and states, the seven-day average of new cases over the last two weeks is still rising in...
  • The Dow Is Soaring Because No One Really Doubts the Rally Anymore

    Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now. Another day, another rally for the stock market, this time buoyed by some actual good news. The stock market’s rally in recent weeks has felt awfully disconnected from the grim reality on the ground. And that only felt more true as protests erupted around the country following the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis policeman. Investors, however, are motivated by fear and greed, and right now both are helping—fear of missing out and greed as the market goes higher. That’s especially true after the bleakness was interrupted by some better economic news—the ADP payrolls...

    FYI only....  Looks like the DJIA may tank again tomorrow. Let us hope it recovers before the opening bell.  Prayers are needed for our President, our Republic and the world to quickly recover. I am not so worried about the Coronvirus itself here in the USA, but the economic impact will easily be billions of lost revenue. https://www.cnbc.com/pre-markets/

    Stocks fell sharply in volatile trading on Tuesday as an emergency rate cut by the Federal Reserve failed to assuage concerns of slower economic growth due to the coronavirus outbreak.

It’s the first such emergency action coming in between scheduled meetings since the financial crisis. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 785.91 points lower, or nearly 3%, to 25,917.41; it rose more...
