    The Dow Tumbles 602 Points Because All the News Looks Bad

    Apple’s product-demand concerns and a cloud hanging over Goldman Sachs dampened Monday’s mood. The Trump administration is reportedly looking to broaden its trade battle with China.

    The reasons to be bearish on the stock market now are swamping the bull case

    Market bulls continue to see strong U.S. GDP growth, a tight labor market and surging corporate profits. A once-pristine fundamental backdrop suddenly looks tarnished, as worries accelerate that economic growth may have peaked, political headwinds are forming, and rising interest rates will stand in the way of future fiscal stimulus from the Trump administration. All it took was a negative headline for Apple about iPhone demand and news about a lingering regulatory issue for Goldman Sachs to send Wall Street into another tailspin.

    China markets rebound strongly after turbulent morning; GDP numbers miss forecasts

    After a turbulent morning, Greater China markets rebounded strongly, following a series of measures by China's securities regulator to support the struggling stock market.

Stocks in Asia were mixed on Friday after China's GDP growth for the third quarter of 2018 came in below expectations.

    With risky bets back in play, stock selloff revives 'Volmageddon' memories

    Months after he lost millions when an esoteric corner of financial markets cratered in February, former Target Corp store manager Seth Golden is betting against volatility again. Golden, who says wagers on market calm earned him millions in the past six years, is among the investors who have kept trading complex financial products linked to the Cboe Volatility Index (.VIX) - Wall Street's "fear gauge" - in the months since some of those products blew up. It was the Johnny-come-latelies and people who shouldn't have been trading volatility in the first place," Golden said.

    The Markets Might Agree With Trump on the Fed

    “I like low interest rates,” Trump said. At least that’s how financial markets seem to be behaving, with the S&P 500 Index tumbling to its lowest since July and benchmark 10-year Treasury note yields reaching their highest since 2011. Equities and bonds have been under pressure ever since the Fed raised rates on Sept. 26 for the third time this year and the seventh time since Trump was elected.

    [$$] Investors Say They Were Harmed by Manipulation in Volatility Products

    A group of investors filed a complaint against Cboe Global Markets Inc. on Friday, alleging that they experienced losses because its popular volatility products were manipulated. The complaint alleges that market players consistently manipulated prices of derivatives tied to the VIX—a widely watched volatility measure that is also known as the Cboe Volatility Index. The investors claim that Cboe, which operates the largest options exchange in the U.S., knew about the activity, according to the complaint filed in the Northern District of Illinois.

    Bull market heads into fourth quarter at highs, but faces hurdles in rising rates and valuations

    The S&P 500 hit another record high last week and is ahead by nearly 10 percent for the year, confirming its longer-term uptrend through August and now most of September — historically challenging months. The market during this economic cycle has not tolerated stocks much above this valuation with bond yields in the 3 percent area. If the stock market were football, then entering the fourth quarter it would be the bulls' game to lose, with most of the pregame question marks about their stamina and halftime worries over roster depth answered assertively — in the form of a big lead and few obvious weaknesses.

    Even if you bought the market the day before Lehman collapsed you'd still be up a whopping 130%

    Buying on the eve of the Lehman crash would have left an investor underwater even three years later. Before Lehman Brothers collapsed, before AIG buckled, before the financial system fully broke down and was bailed out, stocks were already in a bear market. Bank stocks had hemorrhaged more than half their value over the prior year and a half, and the U.S. was nearly a year into a bruising recession.
