Still Plenty Of Unknowns Around The Virus

Stocks have turned back down, USDJPY has extended its recent decline and Gold looks like it’s getting ready to make another run.

While there has been USD selling this week in the aftermath of the 50 basis point rate cut, it seems like most of the activity out there is less about yield differential and more about the deterioration in risk sentiment.

What do you mean that people who have recovered from the virus, got it again. How's that possible? I thought once they had anti-bodies to fight off the virus, they would be safe. Were they reinfected by others? Were they not truly recovered? Or can the virus actually come back? Perhaps a person never really gets rid of it.

This is very troubling. Does anyone know if such a thing is possible in other viruses? I've never heard of anything like that before. Scary!

Indeed. Hopefully this will prove to be untrue. But it was most unsettling. Thanks for reaching out.

There is a lot of hope that this virus will simply "burn out" like #SARS did in 2003. That was a result of warmer summer months combined with a turning point where a significant enough percentage of the population who had been infected, had since recovered and become immune.

If people can catch #COVID19 again without developing immunity, we are in some serious trouble. The virus could be here to stay.

Yes. Was scary to read that. Hopefully it proves to be untrue. Thanks for reaching out.

This was a story I saw. I can't substantiate it, but if you search, you should find. I just thought it was unsettling. Hopefully we'll get ahead of this thing real soon. Thanks for reaching out.
