According to MarketWatch, Bruce Bittles, Chief Investment Strategist at Baird, in a Wednesday afternoon note, said that this two-day rally merits caution: "The scale of this week's stock market move (the S&P 500 is 5% above its late-Monday low) is more a function of the volatility seen in October than evidence, at this point, of improving trends. While index-level strength off of Monday's lows is encouraging, we maintain a cautious view. We can use historical tendencies to describe a likely path forward. At the same time, we cannot be so beholden to these expectations that we turn a blind eye to emerging realities."
