My wife just ordered me 6 cases of beer pending quarantine related emergency shortages( :D what a woman :) )
Seriously though..anybody shorting stocks and buying gold yet or does your spidey tradey sense tell you this will all blow over and we can safely wait in the Winchester ? :geek:
On another serious note..I'll take this opportunity to say that I hope this illness doesn't affect you or your families and that is does indeed go away sooner than later.Take care and all the best

Fingers crossed. Had a fair whack knocked off my pension fund in the last few days. Not sure if it's related but did see a brief headline that the financial markets are nervous. Hoping to take a wedge out in 8 months so not the best timing if it is.

Personally I feel it's an opportunity, itll all be forgotten about in 12 months time & we can all get back to reading and listening to people hate each other again...

If I had any idea how to go about it or indeed what the hell I was doing, I think I'd be buying some of the panic.

Title and thread location a bit ambiguous, maybe we should rename the thread. Do you mind if I edit it?

Real fear in the market. Bound to be some consequences and it feels like it's only going to get worse short term.

Highly leveraged companies will run into difficulties quickly if there is an economic impact. So don't buy those on a dip!

An interesting angle could be the US presidential market, depending on how Trump manages its arrival in the US.

My father in law has started stocking up 6 months worth of food. I am not sure this should be given too much weight into any of your financial modelling however, when the rest of us die, there will likely be some fat finger opportunities abound... (forehead on keyboard sort of thing)...

Among my own group of friends I'm hearing of difficulties with supplies where they or their suppliers are having problems - some with electronic components and others with simple things like packaging. China is in most supply chains somewhere along the line. Your non Chinese sourced materials or ingredients and your non Chinese production line still gets held up because your Chinese packaging machine needs a spare or the the special bags are on back order. Other sources which were previously too expensive are now becoming inundated and capitalising.
