As the trade war rhetoric intensifies, some investors are concerned that the tensions could push the U.S. economy into a recession. "Our calculations suggest that a major trade war would lead to a significant reduction in growth," Michelle Meyer, U.S. economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said in a note, according to CNBC.

There have been more days in the past three months in which the S&P 500 has moved more than 1% than at any other time in recent history. If all of this volatility is getting to you, the average investor, don’t feel badly. Market volatility is how we measure risk.
