Greg Peel is scheduled to return after Australia Day.
For a while it looked like US indices would bounce from oversold conditions, but selling resumed towards the end of the afternoon session and what initially looked like a sunny day ultimately ended with deeper losses.
Clearly, there are too many threats, too many uncertainties, and too many ifs and buts that are weighing on Mr Market's mind. It probably doesn't help when an industry stalwart like Jeremy Grantham is forecasting the "superbubble" will burst and the S&P500 stands to lose -48% a la 2008-2009.
Worried market observers point out afternoon selling has become the new standard for US equities this early in 2022.
Meanwhile, iron ore and industrial metals continue enjoying their moment under the sun.
SPI futures are indicating another down day for the ASX to close off week number three in January.
