    1. Jobless claims hit record 3.3 million as coronavirus clobbers labor market

      Jobless claims hit record 3.3 million as coronavirus clobbers labor market

      Nearly 3.3 million people filed a claim for jobless aid in the week ending March 21, a nearly fivefold increase over the previous weekly record back in 1982. By way of comparison, in the worst single week after the financial crash of 2008, jobless claims stood at 665,000.

      'This represents the single worst one-day piece of labor market news in America's history,' Andrew Stettner, senior fellow at the Century Foundation, said in an email.

      Senate passes $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package

      The Senate passed a historic $2 trillion coronavirus relief package Wednesday night, as it tries to stem the destruction the pandemic has brought to American lives and wallets. 

      The chamber approved the mammoth bill in a unanimous 96-0 vote after days of furious negotiations, partisan sniping and raised tempers on the Senate floor. The bill now heads to the House, which will push to pass it by voice vote Friday morning as most representatives are out of Washington.

      Nancy Pelosi's coronavirus blunder – holding up aid package her fourth major error | Fox News

      As the hours dragged on, the Senate majority leader called out Pelosi for demanding a wish-list of Democratic priorities such as new bargaining powers for unions, tax credits for solar panels and tougher emissions standards for airlines – goals that had nothing to do with protecting the country from the coronavirus. Instead, it appeared the Democrat leader was intent on not letting a crisis go to waste.

    4. Should I spend some marketing dollars?

      Should I spend some marketing dollars?

      The Small Business Association suggests companies budget 7% to 8% of revenues for promotion, but the average small business spends 1% or less.  We find that most small companies don’t even have a written budget and have no plan on how they will market or grow their company.

      In this time of fear, during the coronavirus lock-down, many businesses aren’t making any money and are not even considering spending their precious dollars on marketing.  Yet this is exactly when you should be planning your comeback and your marketing campaign should start prior to the start of your business comeback.

      Congress may let you take $100,000 from your 401(k)

      You may soon be able to withdraw up to $100,000 from your 401(k) retirement plan amid the coronavirus outbreak.

      Just make sure you read the fine print before you jump in.

      The Senate is currently negotiating over a package of COVID-19 stimulus measures, one of which allows savers to take emergency withdrawals – known as hardship distributions – of up to $100,000 from their retirement plans.

    6. Democrats infect coronavirus relief bill with poison

      Democrats infect coronavirus relief bill with poison

      Senate Democrats on Sunday night followed Rahm Emanuel's famous advice to never let a crisis go to waste. They filibustered a bill that had been negotiated by senators of both parties to provide relief for tens of millions of people whose livelihoods are in jeopardy and whose small businesses are failing.

      The most important aspect of any legislative response to the coronavirus crisis is to help businesses maintain their payrolls. Employers are making the decision to lay off their staffs every day, and the longer Washington hesitates in its response, the deeper the economic effect of the virus will be.

      Senate fails to move forward with coronavirus 'Phase 3' bill amid Dems' opposition | Fox News

      The GOP-controlled Senate on Sunday failed to move forward with considering the $1.4 trillion 'Phase Three' stimulus package intended to help businesses and families devastated by the downturn over the coronavirus outbreak, as Senate Majority Leader McConnell, R-Ky., blasted Democrats opposed to the plan.

      The vote came while at least five GOP senators were in self-quarantine, including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who became the first U.S. senator to announce he tested positive for the virus. Senators were asked to practice social distancing and were given a list of health guidelines to follow while entering the chamber.

      Paid sick and family leave: Who qualifies during the coronavirus outbreak

      There’s growing consensus that Americans need to stay home to help prevent the spread of covid-19, especially if they feel sick or have a suspected or confirmed case of the coronavirus that causes it. The health of the nation comes first, experts say, but will workers still get paid?

      About a quarter of U.S. workers currently get no paid sick leave at all. Many are low-wage workers who live paycheck to paycheck. On Wednesday, President Trump signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The bill aims to give paid leave to workers who did not have it and extend paid leave for workers who only got a few days. These benefits are not forever. They would only apply to workers stuck at home due to the coronavirus.

      Warren Buffett's 4 Rules for Investing in a Bear Market

      The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 8% on Thursday morning, officially entering a bear market, which is defined as a decline of 20% or more from a recent high. Just a month ago, the Dow was at its all-time peak. 

      The S&P 500 wasn't far behind, trading 24% below its record just three weeks ago, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq was down 19% in the same span of time.

      It's clear why investors are suddenly rattled. The novel coronavirus outbreak has spread from China around the world, forcing Italy into a lockdown, and disrupting daily life in the U.S. as well as much of the world. Festivals and conferences have been cancelled or put on hold, and sports fans are being told to stay home (games will be played in empty arenas). Americans are cancelling trips and working from home in order to avoid exposure to the ...

      How To Tell When The Stock Market Will Stop Falling, And What To Do When That Happens | Nasdaq

      As I write this, fear of the possible impacts of the coronavirus is gripping the stock market. The major indices have fallen over twenty percent in under three weeks, and we are looking at another opening with the Dow down quadruple digits. I have, on several occasions during those three weeks, said that there is probably more to come, but at some point, there will be bargains to be had. That leads to two questions that apply to this and all sudden, dramatic market collapses: How can you identify the point where it ends, and what should you do when you think you have identified that point?

    17. Wall Street Has Its Worst Day Since 1987

      Wall Street Has Its Worst Day Since 1987

      The escalating coronavirus emergency Thursday sent stocks to their worst losses since the Black Monday crash of 1987, extending a sell-off that has now wiped out most of Wall Street’s big run-up since President Donald Trump’s election.

      The S&P 500 plummeted 9.5%, for a total drop of 26.7% from its all-time high, set just last month. That puts it way past the 20% threshold to make this a bear market, snapping an unprecedented, nearly 11-year bull-market run. The Dow Jones Industrial Average sank 10% for its worst day since a nearly 23% drop on Oct. 19, 1987.

      What You Need to Know About Insurance After Retirement

      RETIREMENT IS WHEN everything changes. Seniors may end up with new schedules, new hobbies and even new homes. In the midst of all these exciting changes, don't overlook the mundane: your insurance coverage.

      With a new season of life at hand, old policies may no longer meet your needs. However, seniors should be cautious about canceling their policies.

      You need to consider your future insurability as well as your individual circumstances and life goals.

      Covered California health insurance sign-ups rise in 2020

      New numbers released Tuesday show many more Californians signed up for health insurance this year than last year, even as state officials are extending the deadline for people to enroll in coverage.

      California’s marketplace saw a 41 percent jump in new sign-ups from last year, from nearly 300,000 to more than 418,000. In total, over 1.5 million people signed up for or renewed insurance plans through the marketplace, known as Covered California.

      State officials and advocacy groups attribute the jump in new enrollments to new state policies aimed at lowering insurance costs for some Californians and fining others who opt not to buy coverage.

      Stocks, Dow Sink As Coronavirus Fears Continue Driving Economic Uncertainty

      Stocks are opening sharply lower on Wall Street, putting the market on track for its worst week since October 2008 during the global financial crisis. U.S. indexes fell 1.8% following steep losses in Europe and Asia. The rout is driven by fear that the virus that emerged in China will derail the global economy. Investors continue to buy up low-risk assets like bonds, sending yields to record lows. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 463 points, or 1.8%, to 25,311. The S&P 500 lost 54 points, or 1.8%, to 2,922. The Nasdaq fell 143 points, or 1.7%, to 8,423.
