Readers, investors, traders — everybody — is (are) taking a deep breath and nervously looking over his shoulder to see if the Halloween market is gong to serve up some more tricks.  The first seven or eight days of this drama were like a boxing match — take a punch to the head which would sideline Ray Rice, then get revenge the next day, everything back to normal — but no, another punch to the head.  File this period in your mind and keep the chart.  You may be staggering around, but  you’ve lived through some historic market action.  And we are back to markets we can at least analyze.

The market has been hammered repeatedly over the last 10 days or so, so naturally the WSJ, attempting to explain the unexplainable, attributes it to fear  that global growth is stalling.  Actually they would have done better to attribute it to the eclipse of the moon, or the eclipse of the Nationals.  Articles like this are written by the market’s disinformation committee to keep non-professional traders from understanding what is going on.
