NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I am staring at a sea of red on my screen as I write this.S&P 500 is down 23 handles, a stronger greenback, interest rates falling, and a whole lot of "risk-off" trade. Looking at the context of this sell-off it is not surprising. Earnings have been disappointing, the S&P's failed to break out above the 1460ish area, and overall the economy remains sluggish.
