LYONS MARKET UPDATE – Monday, December 17, 2018The S&P 500 Index is down about 1%, YTD!  From January 1, 2018 to September 20, the S&P 500 was up over 11% and now has a negative return for the year.  What caused this “week” to be so “weak” and lose 1.4%?  I believe potentially higher rates by the Fed and more trade...
