    I know that, however it also forced people into the stock market. They must have foreseen that, I guess.

    Dow roars back from coronavirus sell-off with biggest gain since 2009, surges 5.1%

    Stocks rebounded sharply from their worst week since the financial crisis on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average posting its best day in more than a decade. Expectations that the Federal Reserve would cut rates drove the gains, which accelerated aggressively into the close.

    The Dow closed 1,293.96 points higher, or 5.1%, at 26,703.32. The move on a percentage basis was the Dow’s biggest since March 2009. It was the largest-ever points gain for the 30-stock average.

    The S&P 500 climbed 4.6% — its best one-day performance since Dec. 26, 2018 — to close at 3,090.23. The Nasdaq Composite also had its best day since 2018, surging 4.5% to 8,952.16.
    Attorney General William Barr: “The fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of 'Resistance' against this Administration,
    it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.”

    What are the motivations? The foreign central banks get US stocks, for free. Our stock market stays inflated. Everyone is oh so happy. Until there is too much US stock in the world, and it becomes worthless.

    But is this a reasonable theory? I may have heard it somewhere.
    definitely yes. Brother, how do you look at the giveaway game? Russia can completely switch to the American market, supply raw materials at low prices, while satisfying the demand of all Americans, in exchange ask only for repayment of world debt to creditors! and also refuse to cooperate with other countries, on the terms of exchanging resources for the dollar, while maintaining trade relations of barter resources for the service! at the same time, it will instantly rebuild the entire market for turnover goods in the world, and Europe will be the main exchange platform, which will be able to take its percentage of resources for mediation. There will be no winners in this tricky game, but obviously everyone will remain stupid! This crazy world needs a new architect, stupid builders must be kicked off the line, they are no longer needed!

    that would also make the US dollar near worthless...the more money circulating the less it has value.
