I was thinking of Newfoundland!

Make Your Parents Proud
Your life means something. Every one of us has our own destiny. Each of us is here for a reason. You may not always know exactly what that reason is or which path to take, but if you do your best to follow it, it will reveal itself in time. And whenever you hit a fork in the path and aren’t sure which way to turn, ask yourself this: “Who in my life do I care most about?” And then make them proud.
- Live the story you want to tell. It’s important to have heroes whose stories you admire, but how much more exciting is it to live your own story. This is a hero’s journey, and you’re the hero.
- Don’t wait for the extra money, or the extra time, or the extra opportunity, to put your destiny and your dreams into action. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Take initiative now. Start making you somedays turn into your everydays.
- Don’t let money become the goal you focus on. Money is a decent scoreboard for how well you’re managing the practical necessities of life, but it’s a terrible measure of personal success. If you make money your goal, it will never last.
- Happiness is a decision. Not an emotion, not a situation, not the result of success but the source of success. Genuine happiness comes from your heart, not your circumstances. Find what it is that makes you happy, and make sure you are doing that.
List the people you care about most in the world. Now ask yourself, what would make them proud of you? And how would that feel?

Last year introduced investors to the concept of a “gamma squeeze.” Traders buying call options on markets caused market makers to buy stocks as a hedge, which created a positive feedback loop. That trade also works in reverse, where market makers need to short stocks seeing a rise in put option trading.
That’s part of the weakness in the tech space lately. However, about one-third of all gamma trades will be gone after the close of trading today. That could lead to a relief rally next week, or at least an end to the tough market grind of the past few weeks.
Have you been adding to any tech holdings lately following this drop?
Hit reply and let us know where you’re looking for bargains now.
Now here’s the rest of the news:

What a great ending to the day! Maybe central bank printing does cure the coronavirus after all.
It was good to see a panic bid in the market that has been so rare during this furious sell-off. This may have legs to carry some of your underwater positions back into the black. Hurray!
It took the S&P 500 only six sessions to fall into correction territory, the fastest downfall in history. The Dow and the S&P 500 each fell 4.4%…

A little girl walked daily to and from school. Though the weather that morning was question-able and clouds were forming, she made her daily trip to school. As the afternoon progress-ed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning.
The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school, and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child.
Following the roar of thunder, lightning, through the sky and full of concern, the mother quickly got in her car and drove along the route to her child school.
As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but at each ﬂash of lightning, the child would stop, look up and smile. Another and another were to follow quickly, each with the little girl stopping, looking up and smiling.
Finally, the mother called over to her child and asked, “What are you doing?”
The child answered, smiling, “God just keeps taking pictures of me.” 😉
