There are always reasons when markets decline and volatility increases, except it is never absolutely clear why until after it has all happened. Given the recent record setting volatility and double digit losses for most all major markets, investors are overwhelmed in all the confusion.
Some of the most likely reasons include: a shift into a long period of low and stable interest rates, on the political front there is Trump-style populism, and cheapening energy prices contributing to a lack of inflation. It is seldom just one thing on its own that causes market corrections. As the burden of worries grows, the correction process suddenly builds all the negatives into values causing a correction. Often markets overreact on the downside and present opportunity. Some background on each of these is discussed to provide perspective.
Updates include: Extendicare Inc. (EXE), Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corp.(LIF), Westshore Terminals Invest Corp. (WTE), Killam Apartment REIT(KMP.UN) and preferred shares.
