We're just into the second week of 2016 and it already felt like a Bear Market.
Not even the pessimist on Wall Street thought things would go wrong so quickly in 2016.
|BEAR MARKET in 2016?|
Dow Jones Industrial Average sank 391 points on Friday, China is struggling to prop up its slowing economy and calm its volatile stock market, and oil price is below $30 a barrel in 12 years....
The selling has been intense, and European stocks officially entered bear market territory on Friday when the Stoxx Europe 600 Index closed down 20 percent from its record high in April. Now global equities have lost more than $14 trillion, or 20 percent, since June. The pace of the drop has been so fast it’s unraveled about half of the rally since a low in 2011. Investors have fled into the U.S. Treasury market, and pushed the yield on the 10-year note below 2 percent for the first time in months.
