Earnings questions, potential recession means even more sales
The Dow and S&P 500 have fallen for six straight days, many of them seeing a general sell-off in what are known as “washout” days.
That can sometimes be a contrarian buy signal on Wall Street, but many investment experts are skeptical that the sell-off is over. One reason is that revenue expectations for next year show more solid growth, which is unlikely in the event of a recession.
