Professional investors expect the market’s big swings in both directions to continue until health experts get the new coronavirus in check.

President Trump wants the government to send checks to Americans in the next 2 wks to help support them while chunks of the economy come closer to shutting down, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Tuesday.

Secretary Mnuchin briefed Senate Republicans on the proposal, which could also include $50-B for the airline industry and $250-B for small businesses.
