Today the S&P 500 gapped down, but then recovered to close at an intraday high, showing that bargain hunters are still active. So is the selloff over? I don’t think so. I’m anticipating more down days as a second wave of COVID crests ahead of the November presidential election drama.
The downturn will likely continue until a second round of stimulus is passed and progress on a vaccine is affirmed. That could mean heavy volatility and selling extending into October. Also, if this is a rotation out of overbought Tech stocks and into Value, then the NASDAQ still has further to decline.
For now, I’m remaining patient and not buying this dip.
