"On Monday the markets did a radical turn when all the indices were in the red," observed Art Hogan of National Securities.

Hogan highlighted that the S&P 500, the most representative of the general market trend, fell 8% below its record of January 3.

"It is its most important drop since the 'crack' caused by the pandemic in February and March 2020."
