NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Throughout the opening weeks of April, investors have been reminded of the challenges that continue to plague the global marketplace. With the debt drama facing Spain and the rest of the troubled euro-region making its way back into the headlines, the calm that defined the opening months of the year has been cast aside and replaced by an uptick in risk-producing volatility.U.S. stock market indices have seen a notable retreat; the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq are all trading at or around their 50-day moving averages. This short streak of weakness may be disappointing, but investors should avoid letting it incite panic-selling.
