Something unpleasant is taking place in the securities market. Not only are markets are down - the
Nasdaq as well as the S&P 500 are down 3.1 % and also 2.6 %, respectively, this week - yet no one
has developed a hassle-free, engaging (and also deceptive) reason why. Never ever mind, states
Matthew Klein, that US stocks are up 30 % considering that the beginning of 2013. We have to know
why they are down today, as Barry Ritholz writes, because we yearn for indicating in a random
Maybe it's all technology stocks' mistake. They have, FEET Alphaville's Dan McCrum drolly
commented, "become a little a lot more modestly priced". The Nasdaq is down 7 % in the last month.
Over the previous two and also a half months, Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, and Netflix are down 31
%, 7 %, 21 %, as well as 16 %, respectively.
Perhaps biotech stocks are the culprit. They are down 4.5 % in the last week, and 16.8 % in the last

chart underneath a line that rises'.
There's always the taper responsible. Yet Joe Weisenthal directs out that stocks are up 3 % since the
Fed started its decrease in property purchases. "This time around," Weisenthal states, "it just seems
to be: stocks are falling". Or as Eddy Elfeinbein stated, "Stocks Are Down on Anxieties of Lower
Share Rates". - Ben Walsh
