    She just sat down and started leafin' through hers :p
    She needs to be cured of that bad habit (ahem) ;)

    EDIT: She peeked vdsbs9pm0on8.png

    I chided her when she told me the number. I chided her. ;)
    She did note, though (and I concur!) that she's glad we sold some stock last week to help recharge our cash reserves for the year. :p

    Market down 1000 today. Will it recover tomorrow, or continue down? The real question is when will this virus strike the US? I suspect when that happens the market will really collapse.

    what Is happening to us... There used to be a day when only the military spoke in acronyms and hieroglyphics. Now everyone does it.

    Try bein' a scientist some time.
    Or read the abstract to our son's PhD thesis in mathematics. There are a few groupings of letters that I can reliably identify as words.

    Isn't there a Netflix series called Pandemic that mimics current situation?

    Bill And Melinda Gates Behind Global Pandemic Excercise Focusing On Coronavirus

    Meanwhile, on Oct. 18, 2019, also before the outbreak, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the World Economic Forum co-hosted an event in NYC where “policymakers, business leaders, and health officials” worked together on a simulated coronavirus outbreak.

    Titled the “Event 201” pandemic, the high-level pandemic exercise “dropped participants right in the midst of an uncontrolled coronavirus outbreak that was spreading like wildfire out of South America to wreak worldwide havoc.”

    “In the simulation, CAPS (the coronavirus) resulted in a death toll of 65 million people within 18 months,” according to John Hopkins University.

    A video highlight reel from the event shows fictional newscasters from “GNN” discuss how the hypothetical immune-resistant virus (nicknamed CAPS) was crippling trade and travel, sending the global economy into freefall.

    It just so happens that a professor from Imperial College London recently warned the coronavirus has the same kill rate as the Spanish flu, which claimed the lives of 20-50 million people in 1918.

    don't mention the flu, you'll get jumped on to start your own thread. :D

    come to think of it the person who jumped on me for mentioning the flu has turned the thread into a financial thread >:)

    IIRC that Spanish flu killed those who had the best immune systems as their body went overboard to combat it which resulted in their death.

    There is no where near the same kill rate. Roughly 80k cases so far worldwide of the CV, and I don't think we hit 100 deaths yet.

    The flu is actually a better comparison. 14k have died from the flu and both viruses kill those with weakened immune systems. Puts the elderly at high risk.

    Let's hope not. That was a quote from Intellihub website. However, if such a similar pandemic arose now, the % of population then compared to world pop. now, the numbers could be close.

    Never say never, right. A global pandemic could happen but highly unlikely at this point. Could be what we are witnessing is trial runs. Devious minds will do devious things to accomplish their goals.

    Nowhere close to the estimated 10% death rate of the Spanish Flu.

    However, just FYI, in China alone, over 2,600 have died.

    At the current 2600 mortalities to 79,000 infections being reported, the numbers indeed coincide.

    That website doesn’t seem to report patient recovery numbers. Seems to be run by a private individual, using THIS resource (from John Hopkins University CCSE), which does include patient recovery numbers.

    P.S. Interesting information from the JHU website, confirming the 100% recovery rate in France, mentioned earlier, other than the elderly Chinese tourist. Also, even in China, so far 27,418 patients have recovered. This is the first time I’ve seen this statistic even mentioned.

    Ok, good to hear from you. I can rest easy now. You always manage to get quarantined here on CP against your will (or knowledge for that matter) lol.

    Not sure what that means. Dow lost almost 900 points today. That is 2000 points in two days. At some point, it will bounce back a little, but when the virus hits the US look out. I’m surprised it hasn’t hit the US yet. Not sure how long our luck can hold out.

    ^^ trading volume. Average daily volume after yesterday's selloff was 271M. Today's volume was 510M shares.

    Volume is an important indicator as is the points down. Helps to determine if there were any dip buyers or was it all on the sell side.
