Q2 2020 Market review

 Almost as quickly as the market dropped in Q1, the market had a strong rebound in Q2. Though it hasn’t yet reached its prior highs, it covered a lot of lost ground very quickly, especially considering the elevated amount of uncertainty surrounding us. To illustrate just how volatile the stock market has been this year, below are numbers for the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), which measures volatility for the S&P 500, the higher the number the higher the volatility.
