As the impact of COVID-19 (the coronavirus) continues to spread throughout the globe, investment markets have been fraught with volatility. Since the most recent peak on February 19th, the S&P 500 is down 12.3% through last Friday, and 8.3% for the year. Historically, a drop of 10% or more is considered a market correction, and the most recent occurrence is the fastest in history, occurring in only six days. There have been 27 market corrections since World War II, with an average decline of 13.7% taking an average of four months. To say this past week was unique is an understatement.
