$SPY $SPX $QQQ $DIA $IWM It's scary how a few photos (in the news, social media, whatever) can so easily sway so many. I was thinking about this, and realized it's wired into the human brain, a vestige to when we lived in small villages. Back then, if we saw 1 "instance" (today's photo equivalent) of something, it was 1 out of a very small sample size, and thus, a high % or probability of occurrence. Today, we see 1 photo, and our brains think the same way. However, forgetting that (along with instantaneous media), live in a country of 300,000,000 (the US). So the photos and data of "covid" cases, gun violence, domestic abuse, "racism", empty grocery store shelves, etc etc, while they do exist, are far less common than we perceive.
