Are We Due for a Major Correction? In the past, market corrections have occurred when one (or more) of the following

happened:  Corporate earnings went negative  Inflation accelerated, Central Banks aggressively raised rates, yield curve inverted  Speculative excesses created bubbles - disconnects between valuations and forward earnings  Global geo-political crisis destroyed confidence The restrained growth we have seen since the last correction has been extending the length of the current up cycle
