US equities suffered their biggest daily collapse since the height of the October panic. Is this the confirmation of a market that has dove head first into trend and volume-feeding risk aversion? While we are moving closer to hitting that terminal velocity, the critical steps are still ahead of us. And, the year-end liquidity drain as well as a speculative rank that has repeatedly taken advantage of short-term bouts of uncertainty will work strongly against the systemic shift.
