The grounding is because they're not sure why a second 737 Max has ploughed in in only six months, for a type that's only been in service since May 17 that's a terrible record. If you don't know why an aircraft has crashed it's often considered a good idea to stop flying them until you know why. For a similar example look at the Comet, until they know for certain why these things are crashing it's not worth the risk. Although if you think it is you can probably get a used example quite cheaply now.
