Wall Street whiplash: Stocks' volatility looks here to stay
Saturday, 8 December 2018 NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market hasn't been this dizzying in years, and investors may need to get used to it. The S&P 500 slid 4.6 percent this past week as worries piled up about the economy's strength, global trade and interest rates. It was a whiplash-inducing reversal from the prior week, when the S&P 500 jumped 4.8 percent. The last time investors experienced such a big swing in stock prices between two weeks was in late 2011. It's the latest gyration for a market that's become increasingly twitchy, as investors try to make sense of big questions that don't yet have clear answers for. Will tariffs derail the global economy and sink profits for businesses around the world? Will the Federal Reserve raise U.S.
