As unprecedented job losses continue to mount from the coronavirus-induced economic slowdown…

…America’s central authorities have finally leapt into action with equally unprecedented firepower.

And on top of this, the Fed just announced a $2.3 Trillion loan and purchase program that includes buying billions of junk bonds — showing how serious it is about serving as the backstop ‘buyer of last resort’ for financial markets.

Will this flood of emergency liquidity staunch the economic damage industries are suffering? Will it push asset prices back up, undoing the recent market losses?
