My prediction is similar to the reaction for Brexit vote. Sharp dip and then rise back, so as REW said, fire sale time!

Many have been looking for a buying opportunity. But as you say.....might be more opportunities over the next few weeks.

lol...I love it. Im so glad things are going the way they're going. This is what almost all of the biased major news groups get...they deserve it. I dont care if the market drops 2000 points overnight...im 33...I can ride the wave. Already queued up more money to go into my index funds.

This will be a V bottom, like Brexit. Nothing bad will happen. Companies will still make money.
