Market Update – June 12, 2020

Thursday’s market selloff served as a reality check to some investors who had forgotten markets do not go straight up. The media pointed to the new spikes in Coronavirus cases as the reason; although certainly true, the markets were looking for a reason to put a pause to the recent rally. The selloff caused the Dow Jones Industrial Average to drop 6.89%, while the S&P 500 decreased by 5.89% and the NASDAQ Composite Index was down 5.26%.
