Top Trading Links: Market Volatility Rushes In

Well, we got that influx of volatility that everyone was waiting on for the past several weeks. The problem with that thinking though is that it was impossible to time.

On Friday, stocks declined sharply and persistently. The market was at its lows when the time keepers showed mercy and rung the bell. For the day, the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) fell 2.45% and the Nasdaq Composite was down 2.54%.

The drop was long overdue, I suppose. Last month I highlighted some key breadth divergences that may have been warning investors.

Now we must go back to our trading process and/or investing plan to see how (if at all) this action affects the way we’ll move forward. Below is some great investing research, trading ideas, and market insights.  Without further adieu, here is this week’s “Top Trading Links”.
