PS. Here the third national lockdown is knocking on our doors. Its due to the Covid B1.1.7 (the UK variant as its widely known). I have the gut feeling that this battle is far from over, and that's why I take my current PP losses more lightheartedly

At zero rates cash is peeing in the ocean when the three heavy weights dive
Can someone explain to me like I'm a 6 year-old why the three heavies (S&P, TLT, IAU) are continuously tanking?
