Need to Know: A tired bull market? The party has years to go, by this calculation

Can stock markets salvage something from this messy week?

The S&P 500 index is still looking at a 1% loss for the week, so a climb into the black will be a haul. To be sure, it’s been a slippery month for equities thus far and if October ends up negative for the three big U.S. indexes, it will mark three straight months of declines.

But all is not lost, says Mark Hulbert. Writing for MarketWatch this morning, he says a weak month will only help set this market up for a “monster” year-end rally.

An early effort may be underway right now.
