    Here's When You Should Buy Stocks Again

    The S&P 500 kicked off the week Monday by gapping down 2.4%, the worst opening gap lower for the broad index since 1982. And it's followed up with consistent selling, putting the broad market on track for its worst week since the financial crisis of 2008. Is this finally the end of the rally that's propelled stocks more than 80% higher on a total-return basis over the past four years?

    Wait for these signals to buy coronavirus-battered stocks, says BNY Mellon strategist

    Some believe the next big fall in equities will come when we see a cluster of U.S. cases, which may partly explain why that popular past time of buying stocks on any dip seems less popular lately. Citigroup strategists are advising against buying equities right now, on the view that if a Federal Reserve lifeline is coming, it may not happen right away. Gov. Warsh argues for immediate, globally coordinated rate cut Our call of the day comes from BNY Mellon's chief strategist Alicia Levine, who has advice for those wanting to know when to buy beaten-down (and down) stocks.

    How to Tell When Markets Finally Reach a Bottom

    Or, when current Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell made his “dovish pivot” in January 2019 by saying the central bank would be “patient and flexible” when it came to considering future interest-rate increases. But what makes the current plunge different is that it's being driven by an event — the threat that the coronavirus will become worldwide pandemic — that is out of the control of monetary policy makers and Wall Street. So, there is unlikely to be some “magic” headline that scrolls across the computer screens of investors and traders that says it is over.

    Jim Cramer has some thoughts on the markets, the Federal Reserve and Microsoft as coronavirus fears shake Wall Street. Stock futures declined sharply Thursday, putting Wall Street on pace for its worst week since the global financial crisis in 2008, as coronavirus infections accelerated and health officials confirmed that a California man contracted the disease despite having no travel links or contacts with those afflicted by the virus. The company warned investors that it will fall short of previously issued fiscal third-quarter sales guidance of between $10.75 billion and $11.15 billion for its "more personal computing" segment, which includes Windows OEM and Surface.

    This ensures that most bio-terrorists will go undetected and infect dozens of people if we do NOTHING to isolate healthy people from infected people who show NO signs of an infection or display only MILD symptoms. Then, the each newly infected person will go on and infect dozens of other healthy people, and within a few weeks there would be nothing we can do to contain the situation. That's why we need to close our borders to all international traffic immediately and start isolating ourselves from other people.
