Swings don’t signal bull’s demise

Despite volatility, there’s hope for the US market in 2016.

Summary: The S&P500 has had a rocky start to the year, but this does not necessarily signal that stocks will finish lower. Current volatility has not reached rarified levels, and market shakiness often accompanies Fed rate rises, like that of December 2015. Even during periods marked by high CBOE Volatility Index scores, the US market has delivered reasonable average returns.

Key take out: Earnings season will determine whether or not stocks finish flat in 2016, and should the US dollar remain stable, there could be surprise upside results.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Shares.
