(September 2020)

For the last several weeks the market has been mired in a rut of high volatility, mostly to the downside. Investors seem to have the impression that it will abate at any moment, but the reality is that a calming seems unlikely. This is for two reasons. Firstly, we are nearing the end of the month and quarter, and stocks are still up significantly on the quarter. This means many investors are likely to take some gains and rotate into fixed income—a negative for equities. Secondly, anxiety about the election seems to be rising, which should keep the markets volatile.
