Without our health we have nothing—and the same goes for the market. That said, if recent investor behavior is any indication, it appears that the lab results from the market’s latest check-up remain inconclusive. In September, investors couldn’t seem to decide what action to take, which created a rollercoaster of market volatility throughout the month. As we see it, however, the market is conclusive about one thing: the ac...
