I like that my brokerage is reporting that my "Cash and Cash Alternatives" position just grew by 114,772,233.33%

Very helpful.

Next question: now that I don't own any individual stocks...do I just move my IRA over to a robo-advisor?

Why spend my time re-balancing (which I will certainly put off and do inefficiently) if a computer can do it for me? Or maybe save that until the next recession when firms get desperate go back to offering big bonuses to roll over your accounts.

Don't rebalance ever. Problem solved.

It means we can do whatever we want. All this worrying about debt and deficits is meaningless. Just go forth, spend, and enjoy.

That or it means something terrible.
Deficits, debt, and spending only matter when Democrats are in charge and spend the money on social programs. Then Republicans care about deficits and debt. When they're in charge and spend the money on the military or tax cuts for rich people, it's all good.

I live in a red state full of fly over people and I paid more.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
