  • Markets drop over 1% at the end of the day

    Stock losses accelerated toward the end of the trading session, leaving major indices around session lows by the time the market closed.

    In the short run people might make out. But you’ll never know if you’re getting in when the momentum is subsiding or when it’s just starting to take off.
