NEW YORK | Wall Street whiplash: Stocks’ volatility looks here to stay
NEW YORK — The stock market hasn’t been this dizzying in years, and investors may need to get used to it.
The S&P 500 slid 4.6 percent this past week as worries piled up about the economy’s strength, global trade and interest rates. It was a whiplash-inducing reversal from the prior week, when the S&P 500 jumped 4.8 percent. The last time investors experienced such a big swing in stock prices between two weeks was in late 2011.
