Can you see the common trait here? The common message in today’s news? Yes, it is all old news. The markets sold-off today but the media failed to find any reason or catalyst for this selling. So the old song has been used to describe markets shaking the weak hands. Volatility is normal and to be expected. We rallied a lot last two months, a pullback was needed. Typically, if we rally into the close of the year, then, historically, January is bullish too (except in 2019). Who knows what is ahead of us but this is not the big sell off or a market crash bears are calling for the last 10 years.
