I have too but with a high degree of caution. This is why diversification is important, limiting losses, and value investing are important.

I am just befuttled and wondering if anyone has theories on how or why the stock market KEEPS increasing with so much bad news.

It was so fragile and tied to JIT, trade, and travel that had the largest or close to the largest collapse in history, dropping over 30% in a month even with some huge individual gain days.

It was propped up by several stimulus injections of cash and loans well over $5 Trillion. I've heard estimates up to $10 Trillion to prop it up.

Headlines say 1/3rd of Americans out of work. The implications are staggering. Less production, less consumption, less trade, lower consumer confidence, etc.

And a pandemic virus which will extend this situation for the near term at least.

So WTF is the stock market continuing to climb?

Because there are more buyers than sellers.

Even some of the talking heads have mentioned that maybe the bottom has already been put in. https://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/qu...&show=&time=18

First the market fall took all companies down. Even those that were valued fairly. Second markets overreact so the market in total fell further than warranted. Third many had stops in place and got heavily in cash on the way down. Fourth people in cash are always looking for the stocks they think are oversold. Fifth not all of these people agree on which they should be. Sixth most all of these are more cautious so they get back in more diversified than normal.

Therefore the market in general on average gets pushed up from it slows.

I own more different stocks than I did before the crash. Only one is very heavy. I will know by market close if this was a good, bad, or even decision and what to do.

You do know you should not post the same thing on different threads but my answer is the same also.
