Not to say markets were ever boring,  but compared to the markets of late??

You'd see a trend.    It would probably continue for a while,   at least a few days,  sometimes longer.  Some news would come along and the trend would change relative to the scope of the news....

These days we see a months worth of trend changes every day..   Sure wish I could swing trade.  :-)

Guess it's time to brush up on harvesting option volatility.  Gotta be sky high in just about every market.

And we had predictability based on fundamentals or principles related to supply/demand instead of extreme panic and over reaction, then pauses, followed by even more extreme panic based on speculated scary unknowns.

This will subside for sure. With a ton of luck, maybe starting next week but more likely by early April.

Not go away suddenly but get much better, with a nice recovery and the bottoms of late March lasting, potentially for a very long time.

Very high confidence in this.
