I think we will see one. Things are so out of whack right now it's not funny. 

There's still some bargains to be had, probably, but not many. I think you'll get your wish soon enough. 

Oh, I fully anticipate that this will be me in 2-3 years...

This is about the time people will start pulling their money out of the market in anticipation of a Biden win. I also agree the Cvirus exploding is for sure playing a big part. 

There's already asset sales going on big time and many more will probably happen before the end of December anticipating that there will be higher tax burdens/less favorable tax situations under a Biden Administration. Art, for example, is being unloaded like crazy right now. So you're probably right that this has something to do with it as well. I think it's a variety of issues coming to a head, many of which you and I have both touched on.

I know you have knowledge about crypto. I bought a bitcoin when it was 6300. Do you think Corona is going to affect it's acceptance and price? I see that Paypal bought a couple of crypto platforms.

Let’s see if cases actually drop after the mandate.  If they do they will be the first in the country.

Just because they mandate it doesn't mean people do it, it doesn't mean businesses enforce it, it doesn't mean people make an effort to distance, etc.

so we've reached this point in my state

note: we are also the youngest state in the nation

Was going to mention this. 

We're getting to the point where they're going to start having to make decisions on who gets the care vs who gets booted because of age or because of severe condition unlikely to survive.

A new study by economists at the University of Kansas has found that counties in the state where residents are obliged to wear masks in public have seen about half as many new coronavirus infections as counties that do not have a mask mandate in force.

I wouldn't take much stock in this study. NM has a statewide mask mandate and you have Grant County with an incidence of 9.5/100k and next door Luna County leading the State at 140/100k. Both demographically similar. Other mask studies are stronger I think.

This is for sure.  I went to a place in Davis County this morning to get a tonneau cover for my new truck.  None of the staff or the customers were wearing masks...except me.  It is not like I am this huge mask zealot, but it still struck me as odd that so many people were just not having it.

Starting to look like there is no such thing as herd immunity and you can get this over and over.

Yeah I read that today. Antibodies start to decline pretty quick. Often times though vaccination apparently provides better immunity. Let’s hope so. At least those of us that plan to get it.

I am thinking maybe two shots a year for the foreseeable future or a virus mutation

I definitely see this at least for the first couple years

Off topic but I got a shingles vaccination yesterday. Worse after effects than most shots in my experience.

That happened to a family member. They regret getting it the discomfort was so bad.

I am due for that one.  I hear the 2nd shot is the one that gets you
