Yikes – Steep Fall In Fridays Stock Market Could Be A Signal For 2013

Despite a far better than expected rise (14% would you believe) in the stock market over 2012, a rather sharp fall in stock markets on Friday seem to be hinting that next year could be a bumpy ride for investors.

This seems to be echoed by many punters who have been releasing and reducing their equity holdings.

Stocks are widely expected to stutter over 2013, as the economic woes in the US, and within many traditional economic strongholds over the world begin to eat into corporate profits.
