October Market Perspective
The U.S. equity markets enjoyed a great start to the 3rd quarter on 2021 in July and August but became susceptible to the historical market volatility in late September and early October. It was a myriad of concerns (discussed below) that generated a sharp reaction in global investor sentiment. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 4.2% for the month of September and 1.46% for the 3rd quarter. The S&P 500 declined a bit more, losing 4.65% for the month but was able to eke out a gain of 0.58% for the quarter. The tech-heavy NASDAQ lost 5.27% for the month and 0.23% for the quarter, primarily as a result of rising interest rates.

This puts our brains into a flight or fight response, which basically makes it impossible to think clearly and rationally.
