E Monday Challenge - Stock Market Commentary
Yesterday the NYSE floor reopened which boosted stocks and spirits.
E Corona
Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway by some measures lost nearly $50 bn in Q1. I think there is a lesson in that. Buffett has always done well by buying when others are too fearful to do so. It may not work this time. He sold all his airline shares.

E Martin Luther King Day Stock Reports
A very strong currency today was the Japanese yen, a reaction to the slow-down in China's growth to barely over 6% and the mounting worries about the latest coronavirus from Wuhan.
Fintech Cyber Attacks
It now appears that cyberattacks were responsible for shut downs of major marketplaces during the late summer of last year.
E Dogs Of War
Unleashing the dogs of war has led to commodity price rises, not just for the most-watched oil prices, but also for copper, palladium, platinum, and the barbaric relic, gold, along with non-relic bitcoin.
E Good News Bad News Day
Sweden has been the first country to exit negative interest rates despite a long tradition of using them to cool off the economy. This may spread and hurt the US.
