MINNEAPOLIS (Stockpickr) -- The market had a relatively orderly retreat last week and that should have investors nervous. Sure volatility exploded as stocks fell, but I did not get the sense of real panic selling by investors. That perceived complacency puts us at risk for further losses.What we are seeing Monday is an adjustment to stock market value given the expectation of smaller cash flows. I've been most worried about the sensationalist nature of a market correction becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy, and yet that is what I think we are getting when it comes to the future of the economy. With policy responses limited by a debt strapped national government and zero interest rates of the Federal Reserve what is out there to save us? I'm honestly not sure. As such selling in the market of late actually makes some sense.
