$ES_F I just got off the phone with an old, bold trader buddy. He's younger than me and doesn't remember 1987 (I had just got my Series 7 at Merrill Lynch in August of that year lol), but he traded 98, 00, and 08 as a professional Nasdaq MM before decimalization, and then later on a prop desk. He does not write code. We both agreed that the current economic situation is much worse than any of those prior crashes. I really don't think there has ever been a time in my life where the global economy has almost ground to a halt. So, while there will be bounces, face-ripping, tradeable bounces, today's was so tepid that I would call it a tell.
