V-Shaped Narrative Dies As Commercial Real Estate Bust Accelerates

• by Tyler Durden

Reopening in some of these states has also been delayed as retailers close up brick and mortar shops for a second time. 

With that being said - the V-shaped recovery narrative is imploding - as many on Wall Street indiscriminately bought stocks (some used picking Scrabble letters to buy) as their belief in the Federal Reserve's money-printing would lift the economy out of one of the worst downturns since the 1930s. 

Though the economy was never lifted in a V-shaped formation, instead, the stock market rose to new highs as wreckless financial speculation led to an army of Robinhood daytraders buying bankrupted companies
