|Omicron Bull or Bear ? |
Let's not be apes for a minute and think. Seriously, I'm having a hard time to consider the possible outcome following Omicron. Based on how bad the market behaved and how panic ensued throughout the world, one could think that this is going to be bad again and we might enter a similar phase to what happened in early 2021 when delta hit. At the same time... I feel that the market seriously overreacted and since I'm an ape I'd definitely buy the fckn dip even if it's only the top of it. Seriously though, we got vaccines, we actually don't know how bad this variant is and if it's really actually bad, we begin to develop cures and pills against the virus for hospitalized people, and so far we haven't reached the same levels we had back when there was delta and full lockdowns. I feel like hospitality/accomodation and tourism in general could suffer, but I don't see how we could return to the worst moments we had in the crisis. I see this as an incredible opportunity to buy. Not to mention that Chief Powell is back on track for the printing. What are your thoughts fellow apes? submitted by /u/Lord_Ancap [link] [comments]
