2018 left a pit in my stomach.
The fourth quarter was especially negative (September 28th – December 31st):
Dow - 11.83 %
S&P 500 - 13.97 %
Nasdaq - 17.54 %
Russell 2000 - 20.51 %
Where do we go from here? As I’ve communicated in the past, volatility is the new normal. I have seen this circus before. Only the ‘monkeys’ have changed.
