Snow and Gusty Wind Today - Poor Travel Conditions Expected

A Nor'easter  is expected to impact the region today, but the impact around the Capital Region looks to be on the lighter side, as the storm takes a more Easterly track. Snowfall of varying intensity is expected through this afternoon and evening.  A gusty NNW wind from 15-20 mph at times will cause blowing and drifting of the very dry snow creating poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions at times through late tonight. General Storm accumulations in the Capital Region of 2-6" are expected, with higher amounts across western New England.

Market Activity/Volatility - 04/10/14

With the big down day today and the recent volatility it sure has spooked many investors.

Bull markets are often highlighted by big downward moves just like bear markets have big upside days.

Is this the beginning of a bear market or a prolonged market downturn ? In my opinion it is a normal reaction to excesses that have built up in a number of different market sectors. These corrections are healthy  although scary when they happen.

Interest rates are still close to record lows and the economy continues to improve albeit slowly. Employment continues to grow which is also a big positive.  I am not sure how long the downturn will last but am confident that it is the pause that refreshes.

Of course I may be wrong.
