@theMarket: The Ides of March and the Market
By Bill Schmick,
03:02PM / Friday, March 05, 2021
It was a rough week in the markets. Investors were whipsawed throughout the week and finished down once again.

Actually, as of Friday (March 5, 2021) morning we have suffered a 6.3 percent decline from the top on the S&P 500 Index futures contract. The pullback, by the way, is long overdue. I am hoping it will
