The major indices are all significantly lower following a volatile session as news hit of a default of the largest Chinese property development company. The default hit global markets overnight and spilled into our markets this morning. I believe that the bull market is still intact. However, we could sell off a bit more on this correction. We have not had a correction and a long period of time and they are common. I’m still forecasting a strong end of the year.
The Dow, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq are all traded below their 50-day moving averages, with the Dow hitting its lowest level since mid-July.
