During the month of September 2014, AroniSmartInvest in Action™ selected a few promising stocks.  The stocks were identified during a period of high market uncertainty and volatility. The uncertainty that started in September has continued in October 2014. By early October, the stock market had recorded an unprecedented decline in major indices and had erased almost all the gains accumulated since the beginning of the year. In early October, in a just one morning, the Dow Jones lost close to 4%.

The US stock market uncertainty appears to be driven by major events and underperformance of economies around the World including: slowing economic growth in China, continued wars in Middle East, the unresolved conflict in Ukraine, the sluggish European economies.
