Pretty blatant market control by the Federal Reserve. Will be interesting to see if their market manipulation works and prevents a collapse. Their 2.3 trillion this morning reversed the futures from negative to strong positive. 2787 is a 50% retracement from the lows. If it gets as far as 2850, the bullish case takes over. Otherwise, it’s a bear trap. If it starts to fall again, the next leg down is going to be truly terrible, as this rally is all based on funny money from the Federal Reserve — it worked in 2008/9, will it work again? Earnings start on Tuesday with JPM. Not surprising the Fed sprang another 2.3 trillion this morning as unemployment went up another 6.6 million people in just a week. It’s really no long about coronavirus, as the plateaus are in for the virus — it’s about the economic devastation that it will bring now and for the next 5 months minimum. The unemployment rate may get to 20%. That’s what the Fed is reacting to.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
