Understanding market corrections
2022 is off to an "interesting" start...
As we try and put the pandemic, political tensions, and economic concerns behind us in in this new year, the market had other ideas. Led by the anticipation of the Federal Reserve raising interest rates, the equity markets have declined from all-time highs to start the year. By decline, I am referring to a drop of greater than 10%, this is known in the investing world as a "correction". It's just a term and does not have any additional or sinister meaning besides the obvious. It provides some context on the magnitude of the markets recent dip. I put together a visual perspective in the link below of what is going on in the markets, what a correction is, and what may become of this current environment. Tech stocks have been hit the hardest (to no real surprise) as future expectations need to be extra rosy to support their lofty valuations.
