Why it Feels Like Something Isn’t Quite Right with the Stock Market

US stocks are still in a bull market. Large parts of the stock market are down significantly since June. Last Friday, Bloomberg reported that “roughly half the biggest stocks are mired in corrections, down 10 percent or more from their one-year high.” The S&P 500 is now up 210% from its 2009 low, and is up 2.1% this year.

Averaging Down: Biggest Lie in Investing – Don’t Fall for It

And that’s after you’ve already doubled-down on your investment.
