Stock Market in 2020:
Why would we sell stocks if there’s looting, riots, 40 million unemployed, 30%+ decline in GDP, worst earnings since 2008, and economic shutdowns across the world? The Fed will fix it!

Consistent with the very sharp disconnect between #markets and the #economy,Dow and S&P futures are essentially unchanged this early morning despite a weekend of violent street protests and #China "pausing" some agricultural imports from the US–and this after a solid May (chart) pic.twitter.com/3H5t2niwCG

Stock market investors don't care that riots and looting just made the recession worse, guaranteed that fewer small businesses reopen, and saddled those that do with higher insurance costs. Rising unemployment and consumer prices don't matter when the Fed can just print money.
