Nasdaq Flirts with Down 10%…in October

JP Gravitt

The Nasdaq (QQQ) is down 9% this month, but still up 6% YTD.  China (FXI) is down 30% this year.  Germany (DAX) is down 13% this year.  Only Brazil stands out nicely, up 10.5% so far this year.  The DJIA (DIA) is hanging on to a 1% gain while the S&P 500 (SPY) is up just over 1%.  When will the madness end?  And should you be buying into to these daunting charts?
