This week saw stocks take a hit.
Most of the damage was done on Tuesday, but by week’s end the S&P 500 Index (INDEXSP:.INX) had fallen 1.5%.
At current levels, the S&P 500 is just 3 percent off all-time highs. The question here: Is this just a run-of-the-mill 3 to 5 percent pullback? Or something worse?
Slowing momentum has pointed to divergence for several days, so this pullback isn’t unexpected. Bearish sentiment has perked up a bit (see: Twitter), but regardless, a healthy break was due.
This week’s set of links include macro research, investing trends, trading ideas, and some notable news. Read up!
