Hello, how are you all?
Attention! Portfolio rising, were +12.39% this week. Week in green for the portfolio, there was a break for 4 consecutive weeks in red. My wife and I have been confined for 2 weeks, because the spread of the coronavirus has disrupted the world and is causing us to deal with major disruptions to our lives and our responses. So, it is time to continue, stay focused and be patient.

(Seeking Alpha) Stocks closed near session lows Friday after an afternoon push fizzled, giving back some of the strong gains from the previous three days and capping off another volatile week of trading. Stocks started lower but trimmed losses amid quarterly rebalancing activity and the House’s passage of the $2 trillion coronavirus rescue package without undue delay, but a late downturn coincided with news that the Fed would reduce its daily pace of Treasury buying to $60B starting next week. The major averages still posted big gains for the week, with the Dow soaring +12.8% for its biggest one-week gain since 1938, the S&P jumping +10.3% and the Nasdaq $QQQ rising +9%.

The SEC suspended trading in the largely defunct Zoom Technologies (OTC:ZOOM) – once a distributor of wireless products – after widespread confusion with popular videoconferencing company Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ:ZM), which has seen a sharp rise in usage and stock price amid the COVID-19 pandemic. That suspension lasts until April 8 – hopefully giving everyone enough time to learn who’s who. Over the past three months, Zoom Video Communications has risen 109%, while Zoom Technologies went from $1.26 to an intraday high of $60 last Friday.
