I sold on the first bounce after the 5% crash, because it was clear that the market finally started to take virus into account and it was gonna blow out. Unfortunately missed the bailout bounce, I don’t really have the risk appetite for it since I expect it to be a short pop and then continued unwind.

I agree that there is no reason to rush in. I expect the Dow to dip below 13,000 before the bottom.

There may be additional inflation pressures on the dollar that were balancing against but that’s gonna be a hard thing to guess. The true inflation numbers haven’t been reported since the mid 90s. Maybe I’ll just use the pickup truck index as a proxy 1.4 factor from 2008 puts us at 12000 on the Dow , I think that’s a pretty fair guess
