Navigate the Turbulent Waters of August with Weiss
|By Mahdis Marzooghian|
It’s tough being an investor sometimes — especially in a market that gets more seesaw action than a children’s playground.
Indeed, at open on Friday, the Dow Industrials fell for a fourth straight day, losing more than 100 points.
Additionally, the S&P 500 went down 0.5%, and the Nasdaq Composite slid 0.9%. All of the major averages were on track for their fourth straight daily loss.
Now, seasoned investors know all too well that August is a historically volatile month for markets, but it still doesn’t make navigating it any easier.
Plus, there are a few additional reasons for the market turbulence. You can blame the decline in earnings, high bond yields — the current 10-year bond yield is over 4%, while the inflation rate keeps dropping — and China’s economic slump.
I could probably list a few more culprits, but these are some of the big ones. And while all this weakness might make even the most adept and fearless of investors a little nervous, you know you have the data- and ratings-backed research of our Weiss experts to help you navigate along the tough waters of what has turned out to be a cruel summer.
