This most recent market correction is still developing, and I see no real rebound in sight. So, I’m just watching my lists for now and waiting for the right time to make some moves. It could be that the markets will fall further to finish the so-called October Effect. And in November after much of the earnings reports have been publicly reported, perhaps the stock market will begin to bounce back.

But right now, this is a time to just watch to see what happens. Lots of volatility going on and A+ companies are down right now… theoretically a good time to buy (into the dip) but we need to watch to see where rock bottom lies.
