Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Every week can’t be a good week. After a month of almost exclusively green weeks, we finally saw a pullback in the market. After reaching a peak of about $144B on Saturday, the market cap steeply fell and is currently flatlining at just over $130.7B. This drop leaves us with around a three percent market decline since last Friday. Not great but not terrible, either.
