What does the market control?
American investors are still struggling with doubts about the slowdown in global growth, US-China trade relations, and rising interest rates that can be expected next year. These doubts have gathered to raise concerns that we are nearing the end of the current economic expansion, strategists say.
The technology sector so far has most likely lost this sentiment change. Tech stocks prolonged the downturn, which led to a drop in the market on Monday, with reports from China adding fuel for sale a day after officials in Beijing revealed extensive evidence of the pro-competitive behavior of Korean competitors. According to The Wall Street Journal, investigators in Beijing participated in Samsung Electronics

Meantime, Target Corp.. Yippee
shares declined on Tuesday after a discount retailer reported third-quarter fiscal returns and sales for the same sale that lost expectations. The loser of the retailer also has the potential to pull the shares of its competitors.
What do strategists say?
"Economic data remains strong, but the trend is worsening," said Peter Lazaroff, chief investment officer at Plancorp. He has made the case that the recent turning point in sentiment is due to investors believing that we have already experienced the fastest growth rates for both the US economy and corporate profits.
"Economic conditions are good, but the chances of worsening economic conditions next year or more are much higher than surprises on the rise," Lazaroff said.
At the same time, Lazaroff stressed that volatility levels had only returned to normal levels, while the low volatility that characterized most of today's bull market was lightened. "This kind of price action is extremely normal," he said. "It was strange that in the last few years, investors have made a profit, not realizing any volatility."
