Time to Step Back, Focus on Investing Not Day to Day Speculation, Do Not Sell American Markets Short

Today, tabloid and irresponsible journalism, is causing panic through unwise coverage that is dominating MSM, compounded by instant commentary and nonsense on social media. This prays on human fear and uninformed investors.

Daily event cancellations, containment of countries, regions or zones caused by the Coronavirus, rapid decline in equity values, treasury yields at record lows, Crude Oil prices dissolving into the $20’s bbl range, caused by Russian and Saudi self-interest to crush a highly leveraged US shale oil industry.

At the same time, sensationalistic social media modify and magnify negative sentiment, thus creating uncertainty and fostering fear.

Markets always react poorly to fear and uncertainty.

Truth is Key!
