My business is actually not bad as I expected. I don’t know why because if people aren’t making money because they’re at home they shouldn’t be spending money.

Just going to roll with it, and invest a ton of my profits in the stock market.

I expected mine to be worse due to the virus. BUT, without the virus, they should be way better than even normal around this point. So I'm definitely way down. My stuff is for people with somewhat disposable income tho.

You must be selling necessities and not entertainment splurging stuff I'd assume.

Yeah same here. In way, I think a lot of sellers based online are thriving in these conditions. Maybe not thriving per say, but definitely compared to brick and motors without any income.

People with money, want to spend it. Weather its smart to or not with the uncertainty... lot of places are closed now, forced to by the government as I imagine you know. Online shopping is the only way for most things not of necessity like food. I'm getting messages daily asking if my company is shipping due to the virus.

Plus about 20-30% of my money is international buyers. So that helps a little. People are still buying internationally, for me at least.

The brick and motor companies, they're the ones f*cked.

Patiently waiting on the 2000 s&p500 level. If it holds, may pick up some there. If it folds, look out wayyyy below.

I’m waiting for $180 on spy as a long, long term investment. I might buy at $200 though. If it doesn’t hit there are plenty of other companies I’m buying now.

Our market hasn’t dropped this much or this fast since the Great Depression. We’re truly, truly in unprecedented times.

People in their homes, they prefer to purchase online instead of taking a risk getting infected with the covid19.

I have had three abnormally slow days. One being last night, last Friday and super Tuesday. Why? Super Tuesday makes sense. The other two days, I really have no idea why.

Not trying to time it, thats impossible. Just buying and averaging down as certain companies go down more and more. Not worried.

Right on - cost averaging is a decent premise for the large established companies
