The investing community has dealt with more volatility in 2018 and frankly has had less success with lower rewards from buying the dips in 2018 than in prior years. Many of those same investors also are reconsidering how they want their investments positioned ahead of the midterm elections and given international trade concerns.

Stocks sold off handily on Tuesday as the 3% mark on the 10-year Treasury yield was challenged, but stocks were trying to stage a small rally on Wednesday morning. Some investors have reconsidered what the nine-year bull market may bring in 2018 and beyond.
