    Just saw your post from a couple of days ago. I wondered what had become of you and expressed this some time ago. Generally, people disappear when bad stuff is happening, understandably.

    Sometime in the future, I anticipate that Don V. will give up on this site and then we will all disappear into the ether, I guess.

    I wish you and yours well.

    Hi Paula,

    Thank you for your message. I tried to keep posting, but the world seemed to go upside down on my family. I am sure this is happening to a great deal of families.

    I have not gotten a chance to go through old posts. Oh, I hope this site continues because I find it so useful when I am trading more frequently.

    Paula, I hope you are doing well. A lot of stress these days for young people trying to provide for their families, especially with unemployment surging.

    Take care.

    You are not alone. Most of my family is gone now with the latest casualties a brother in law along with his daughter and her son. (long sad story like most) Not many left now. And this Covid 19 issue has driven me close to madness. Or else I was already there and now just realize it. Even the stats don’t make sense anymore. Interest rates which are critical to banking success are close to zero but the banks are rallying. Gold should be soaring but isn’t. And the SPX type stocks are rallying to new highs in the face of bankruptcies with business closings & laid off workers collecting federal aid. And with it all the public is buying everything in site along with expensive houses etc and the banks are lending these partially employed people all the money they want. Now we have to wear masks almost to bed along with in hallways and elevators. (gasp) I’m getting very,very tired of it all and it reminds me of the old saying, “I’m mad as hell and am not going to take it anymore.” Stay well and don’t put up with too much crap.

    Here is a Daily chart of the $SPX. Price is once again stretched out and over 400pts above its 200ema. And everyone is a bull as well. Not a good sign. Perhaps it’s time to come home to mama.(oink,oink.)

  6. Paula Says:

    I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Especially sad to hear of younger people who have not had a chance to be cut short in their lives.
