The Return of Market Volatility

The stock market calm came to a sudden and decisive end in early February as the S&P 500 dropped more than 6% in the first three days of trading.

What caused the drop? Market watchers say it was a combination of inflation fears, interest rate jitters, and algorithmic trading combined to rattle investor confidence.

February’s event was hard for some to explain. In the past, market volatility has been pinned to specific events; Brexit, for example, or the 2016 Presidential election. But this was a sudden change in market psychology. To complicate matters, sentiment shifted again and stock trended higher before Valentine’s Day.

Join our market expert, Mike Woods, as we discuss the return of market volatility in this special LIVE broadcast.

We’ll discuss:

  • What confluence of factors triggered the volatile trading
  • What’s the outlook for interest rates for 2018
  • How to settle the nerves of investors, who went through an unprecedented period of low market volatility

We hope to see you there!
