2% down? Remind me not to look at the 401K for a while.

I guess a correction was coming.
Adobe is down 5%
Boeing and Microsoft 4%
Apple almost 3%

I set a stop-loss at $220 on AAPL when it was $226. It just triggered, much to my surprise.

That one share was at $222.90 which my $220 stop-loss dumped at $219.73

I could be wrong, but this always seems to happen right before "earnings season" on the market. Makes me think it's all part of the game designed to scare the weak and drive stock prices down to create a better buying opportunity when companies start announcing their earnings.

Anyway, it probably has little to no impact on the "buy and hold longterm" crowd, but is sure does panic the day traders and those who scare easily into "buying high and selling low".

Rising interest rates are finally starting to have an affect on the stock market. Like they always eventually do.

Not so unusual knee-jerk reaction to rumors /and implementation of Fed interest rate hikes
rates were held low to stimulate the economy. It's pretty much well stimulated now. Look for incrmental rates for a more natural balance.

Central bank really doesn't accommodate politics in their decisions to raise or lower interest rates despite what the fear-mongering rhetoric of the day is.

Well that depends on what stocks are way down and what you are interested in. Technology was hit. I’m just glad I sold 1500 shares of FORD last week. PPG was the signal last night autos would be hit. GE surprised me. I think it went up a bit.

Amz hit hard but the price is still too high for me to add more.

Watch for a down start tomorrow.

Good luck to all.

Whatever $$ think you can lose. The Dow has been on a historic bull run. It's bound to correct.
