I am still not convinced this sell off is over though. This is very typical market selling... back to back days of selling followed by positive blips but the downtrend remains. It's somewhat hard to read opinion pieces that write some stocks are cheap and on sale and asking readers to buy. NOt too sure that's the best advice. I know it's october historically a selling month but that's for tax purposes and u would see losses if market didn't do particularly well (why would ppl sell to pay taxes ?) . Perhaps the midterm election may turn things around but then what will prevent market to go farther down when federal reserve will show no inclination to stop raising rates? Some of the earnings aren't really justifying the stock prices either.

mortgage rate already close to 5. I just got a quote at 4.75 when 3 years ago I was getting 3.5. with the new tax laws and this rising rate i expect the housing price to fall further into 2019. Also if market falls, housing will follow also.
Life is short. Have an affair.
