October 29, 2018


U.S. stocks suffered another leg down in their October selloff this week, setting up this month to be one of the worst for the major indexes in years. Equities have been dragged down due to a number of factors in recent weeks. The S&P 500 fell 3.9% while the tech heavy NASDAQ retreated by 3.8%.

While 2017 was characterized by an unprecedented lack of volatility, that paradigm seems to have changed in 2018.

In more positive news, significant consumer and government spending boosted economic growth in the third quarter.
