Is this the bubble burst many were expecting once The Federal Reserve starting raising rates?
Well, if today’s market opening is an indication, the answer is yes. The NASDAQ Composite Index is down 1.36% and West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil futures prices are down 2%.
The S&P 500 index is down over 10% since January 3rd.
Drawdown is taking place.
But if you think the US equities are deflating, look at European equities. The Euro Stoxx 50 index is down 4.04%.
Is this a Don Ho “Tiny Bubble” burst? Or a slow deflation of asset prices as The Fed removes its stimulus?
