Abstract

The U.S. stock market entered a major correction on 2 February 2018, impacting most of the markets worldwide. Stock indices plunged as volatility increased. The correction was spurred mainly by the U.S. stock market overvaluation as well as concerns about inflation spike in the United States. Yet, there are no signs of a system-wide crisis.
