I have received some emails from investors who are becoming more concerned as the market craters still further. Feeling worried as stocks fall further is not unusual for novice and professional investors alike. Declines in stocks can be swift, brutal and downright scary. They are a lot like riding the Intimidator or El Toro roller coasters, to name just two popular but rather horrific “fun rides”.
Since Monday the S&P has lost 277 points from the high set just a week ago Wednesday, Feb 19 at 3393.52.
