I didn't get out and if I recall was up 7.6% from the Xmas eve low to the end of 2018 and then up 31.0% for 2019. I went to 83% cash this past Monday though. Hopefully the virus won't get completely out of control but I think efforts to contain it will cause a global recession regardless. Stock valuations are near historical highs so I just feel like the reward for staying in outweighs the potential risk of a deep global recession.

Concerts, conventions, sporting events, and basically any kind of large gatherings are going to be cancelled or significantly scaled back. The Olympics in Japan are in serious jeopardy of being cancelled and even if they aren't it's likely a large number of countries will be on travel ban lists by then.
