Unless we lose 20% plus, I do not think we are headed for a bear market, Peter Cardillo, Chief Market Economist, Spartan Capital, tells ET Now.
What is the market mood looking like? Maybe the headline numbers on growth look good but the internals do not suggest that the momentum is here to stay?
The markets right now are going through a pretty severe correction. I say severe correction because the fact that the Dow managed to lose all the gains this year and of course, the S&P fell rather sharply over 3% suggests that this market erosion is going to continue.
There are several factors for this; the main one is that we are beginning to see tariffs impact earnings even though some of the companies have reported earnings matching expectations.The fact is the guidance they are beginning to sell the alarm that prices are going up and that means either the companies pass the increases on to the consumers or they have to absorb them and that means lower earnings.
