Investor Alert: Stocks Can Go Down

Which of the following explains Monday's decline for stocks?

  1) Because of the Super Bowl indicator (Stocks often go down when AFC team wins the game. Those damn Ravens!).

  2) First whiff of European Debt concerns in a long time.

  3) Or maybe the market just can't keep going up every day without a rest.

I would say that #3 is the prime driver here with #2 being an easy excuse for that much needed sell off. I am most certainly a buyer on the dip and recommend you do the same.
