I see nothing obvious pushing stuff down except the apparent feeling of some of the more excitable market participants that it is "time" for a correction. Knock yourself out, guys.
I didn't realize today was a "market correction" till I got stuck waiting on hold with Fidelity for 30 minutes. I wondered what was up, checked the market quotes, and then figured out I was waiting in the hold queue so everyone could place their sell orders.

Meh, none of that is new; people just decided to pay attention to it because they need a psychological excuse to sell.

SELL?

We bought a chunk of Vanguard Small Cap today with proceeds from selling stock options last week just before DH's company stock slid almost 20%...if I pretended to be a market timer I'd say, yup sold at the high just like we planned

Now we're all balanced and I can go about my merry way.

No no no...
Even if you are a "dirty market timer", you are supposed to pretend you are not and to say that you are just "rebalancing".

Dex, we are always at a pivotal time. A market is made up of buyers and sellers, some think it's time to buy and some think it's time to sell. Me, I don't know nothin, I'm just sittin with what I got. The market can do what ever it wants to. I've learned my lesson and was almost out a 7K the last down turn.

I don't think your market timing is much better than mine or anyone elses for that matter.

So, let me see if I understand all this...

China is growing too fast, so they "allegedly" act to slow growth. The market goes down...

The declining dollar is not good. The dollar rallies, and stocks go down...

Time for a med!
