Continuing to discuss volatility is getting really old. Maybe it is time we reframe what volatility really means in the markets. 200-400 point daily swings in the Dow is now normal. 1-2% daily swings in the S&P 500 is now normal. Will this last forever? Not likely but for now it is what everyone should just get used to. It is a further example of why looking at the market on a daily or weekly (or even quarterly) basis is fairly pointless. Let us do it for you. You probably have enough things on your mind daily. The last thing you need is to fret over these big back and forth movements.
