Market Down 1,000 Points Last Week- What About You?

Last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down a total of 1,000 points- yes, 1,000 points. Yesterday, it opened up another 1,000 points down. Last week was a good example of how the markets go up slowly but when they fall, they fall very fast! Are we seeing the beginning of a correction we’ve all been expecting? Or is this just another blip on the bull market run? The answer, of course, is no one knows.
