Are you prepared?
While being down hundreds of points on the Dow in a day isn't what it used to be, it's still a big deal. String a couple of those sessions together, and it could potentially become an even bigger deal. This concern is what will dominate Wall Street trading screens on Monday, as the Dow tries to turn it around after losing nearly 1,200 points between Wednesday and Friday last week.
Reversing the fresh bearish sentiment in the market, fueled by one part the unknown of President Trump's new trade war with China and other the Facebook (FB - Get Report) data breach fallout, won't be easy. A bruising selloff on Friday has left the Dow slightly below its Feb. 8 low. The S&P 500 is only 0.2% away from testing its Feb. 8 low.
With the economic calendar somewhat light and first-quarter earnings season still weeks away, the market will remain news-driven. If last week was any indication, a market at the whims of headlines -- mostly from Trump -- isn't too good a place to be.
Luckily, there is help on the way.
