The stock market sell off has been an aggressive start to the year, with major indices down 9%, and worse in the tech market, with the NASDAQ down 15% from all-time highs set in November 2021. Whilst at this stage it is only a correction (a move of 10%) and not yet officially a bear market (that line is 20%), the media is taking it with some surprise – and panic. To those who watch the markets it is no surprise at all.
