Yep, volatility is back. That is normal. What was not normal? The year 2017.
Look at the chart below that shows average volatility in the market. Last year had the lowest volatility in the past 25 years. During those 25 years the average daily price change was .73% compared to half of that in 2017. The market “swings” we are seeing this year may feel new, but they are normal.
