By now, you’ve most likely have read the headlines in the news, full of scary-sounding words like the rout and storm, plunge and crash. Whatever you want to call it, investors have certainly endured a rough time over the last week. The Dow, dominating the media’s coverage as usual, dropped more than 600 points last Friday, February 2, and almost 1,200 points on Monday February 5th. Monday’s single-day decline of 4.6% was the largest since 2011. The other major indexes were shaky as well.
