In the 75 years from 1943-2017, the S&P 500 had 28 declines of at least 10% but less than 20% or once every 2.7 years.

A correction is defined as a stock market decline of at least 10% but less than 20%

The bottom line is this – the fact that the stock market is turbulent is actually a normal event.

If you need to find a single antagonist for stock market volatility then you probably need to go have a long hard look in the mirror because we’re all to blame for the stock market’s volatility.
