Anyone thinking that today's plummeting markets are the beginning of an overdue correction / bear market? Anyone changing their strategies -- focusing on short opportunities as opposed to long ones? In my (perhaps unqualified) opinion, the markets are indeed heading into a correctionary period that could see valuations drop significantly across the board. Among others, I'd be looking at the metals sector (tie, ati, etc.) to give up a good deal of ground. Also, a number of tech stocks that have enjoyed big gains over the past several months (or years) should come down as well. Any thoughts? Am I simply to naive to understand that today's drop is a soon-to-be forgotten aberration in an otherwise bullish market?
