Market Update for Mar 16, 2020

In today's update:

1) U.S. Equity markets plummet again after Fed's weekend announcement fails to spark buying. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 2997.10 or 12.93% and the S&P 500 fell 324.89 or 11.98% while the NASDAQ 100 closed lower by 970.28 or 12.32% and the Russell 2000 finished lower by 172.72 or 14.27%.

2) Crude Oil Futures fell another $3.03 or 9.5% as demand continues to drop while Gold Futures dropped 14.10 or 0.90%. The Bond market closed sharply higher and the yield on the 10-Year Treasury Note settled at 0.722%.

3) The U.S. Equity markets have fallen approximately 30% from their highs in just the past month. This has resulted in many investors wondering if we are headed for a recession or a depression. No one can know for sure, but it's the uncertainty that is really hurting this market.
