Street too optimistic on shutdown length ... it's not a few days
More likely shutdown to end of Oct. to end of Nov. but possibly end of Jan. (based on info. from gov't. workers). With so many gov't. employees and departments deemed "essential" and unaffected, the gov't. can keep running fine in shutdown mode. Still you have many nonessential employees furloughed; and tax refunds held up .... so it will have a big negative effect on the economy.
