Throughout history of the US stock market, massive death has been bullish.
Wars, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, civil wars, pandemics and so on have always been associated with rising stock markets. It is simple: the more people die, the more money is printed, which goes to the banking system and ends up in stock indexes.
Right now the new wave of infections and deaths is the best news for stocks. Taliban winning the war can lead to terrorist attacks, which adds to the bullish case as well. Crime wave in the US and the rest of the world helps too. If we get a devastating hurricane or an earthquake, S&P will become unstoppable. A bloody war would propel it to 10,000.
I'm leveraging long this morning. S&P and NASDAQ 100. And don't ask me about stops. Stops are for shorts. You don't need one if you are long these two indexes.
