The market recovered somewhat on Tuesday, but when we see blood red arrows pointing down for several days in a row, it is very easy to suspect the worst. Being sensitive to bad—or potentially bad—outcomes can be helpful, but reacting in herky jerky fashion can be costly. Big sounding numbers scare people. Experiments have shown that people believe cancer is riskier when they are told that it kills “1,286 out of 10,000 people” than when they hear that it kills “24.14 out of 100 people.” Hearing “1,286” immediately brings a large number of victims to mind, while “24.14” is simply a much smaller number. Actually, 24.14 % would affect far more people. Steve and Sinclair review Mr. Zweigs article and then review the facts about bear markets and corrections.
