NEW YORK — The stock market hasn’t been this dizzying in years, and investors may need to get used to it.The S&P 500 slid 4.6 per cent this past week as worries piled up about the economy’s strength, global trade and interest rates. It was a whiplash-inducing reversal from the prior week, when the S&P 500 jumped 4.8 per cent. The last time investors experienced such a big swing in stock prices between two weeks was in late 2011.It’s the latest gyration for a market that’s become increasingly twitchy, as investors try to make sense of big questions that don’t yet have clear answers for. Will tariffs derail the global economy and sink profits for businesses around the world? Will the Federal Reserve raise U.S. interest rates too quickly and choke off growth?Many Wall Street strategists see more volatility on the horizon.“What we have experienced in 2018 and most acutely since October is, unfortunately, more normal than not,” said Katie Nixon, chief investment officer at Northern Trust Wealth Management.With economic growth expected to slow and interest rates expected to rise, many along Wall Street are forecasting 2019 will be a rocky year for stocks. “The end of easy” is the title that Wells Fargo Investment Institute gave for its 2019 investment outlook.Easy, for investors, is what the stock market had been for most of its run that began in the spring of 2009. For most of the past decade, the Federal Reserve kept interest rates extremely low to promote economic growth following the 2008 financial crisis and the Great Recession. That helped keep borrowing costs down and lift all kinds of markets.But now the Fed is gradually raising interest rates. It has increased short-term rates eight times since 2015, and economists expect another hike to come later this month. Those higher rates — and expectations for more — have been one catalyst for recent selling.Worries about trade tensions between the United States and China have also driven big swings for stocks, in both directions. At the start of this past week, stocks jumped on hopes that the two countries had brokered a truce. But those gains evaporated as investors grew confused about what the two sides had actually agreed upon.“We started up sharply because we thought we had a deal with China and we ended at the lows for the day,” said Lindsey Bell, investment strategist at CFRA Research. “That tells me people are using days where we see some green to sell out of positions into the strength, and that’s pulling the market lower. The sentiment in the market is extremely negative.”The current skid for stocks is the third big swoon for the markets this year. The first was a dramatic downturn in late January and early February, when the S&P 500 lost 10 per cent in just nine days. That was followed by a less severe stumble in March.But the middle of this year was placid, which raised hopes for a return to a smoother ride. Between late June and early October, the market didn’t rise or fall as much as 1 per cent in a single day. That was similar to the scenario in 2017, when the market drifted gradually higher and finished up 19.4 per cent.Soaring corporate profits, fueled by sweeping corporate tax cuts, powered the market’s recovery this spring and summer. S&P 500 companies delivered second-quarter earnings growth of 25 per cent, well ahead of forecasts. That helped send the S&P 500 to a new all-time high in September, erasing the losses from its correction in February.But now doubts are emerging that a similar surge in earnings growth will rally markets out of their latest skid. S&P 500 companies delivered yet another blockbuster quarter of earnings growth for the third quarter, but the reports have not lifted stocks.All the gyrations are yet another reminder to investors that the downside to owning stocks, which have had the best results over the long term, is that they’re risky and prone to sudden drops in price.“We accept volatility as the cost of doing business,” Nixon said, “and we anticipate over time that we will be compensated for taking the extra risk.”___AP Business Writers Marley Jay in New York and Alex Veiga in Los Angeles contributed to this report.Stan Choe, The Associated Press
Hyderabad: The Congress party has decided to leverage the political potential of the backward communities of the State to win the municipal elections that would be held soon. A decision in this regard has been taken at the meeting of the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) office bearers, senior leaders and District Congress Committee presidents.

Speaking at the meeting, Uttam Kumar Reddy strongly condemned Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for slashing the reservation percentage for Backward Classes in municipal elections.

He demanded that BCs should be given reservation in proportionate to their population. He claimed that the Congress was quite strong and had a potential to win a majority of seats in the next municipal elections. Later, addressing the media, Uttam Kumar Reddy said the Congress party’s flag hoisting programme in municipalities has been extended till August 19. Advertise With Us He appealed to the party cadre to organise the “Inti Intiki Congress, Vaada Vaadalo Congress Jhanda” programme in all municipalities at a massive scale across the State. He claimed that the programme has been a huge success so far and urged the party leaders to conduct the programmes in left-out areas. He also asked them to organise 75th birth anniversary celebrations of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi at a grand scale on August 20. He described the criticism by Union Home Minister Amit Shah of the process adopted for creation of Telangana State as unwarranted. He condemned Amit Shah’s remarks wherein he stated that Telangana State was created by closing down the doors of Parliament. “It is a normal process that the doors of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha are closed whenever bills are passed through voting,” he said adding that Telangana was formed after the then Congress-led UPA government followed a due process and held wider consultations with all political parties and other stake holders. He said Telangana was the result of a broader consensus among political parties and groups. Except for CPI (M) and MIM, all other parties had supported the formation of Telangana. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah repeatedly criticised the process adopted for AP’s bifurcation on multiple occasions. “Does it mean that they disapprove the formation of Telangana State?” he asked. “It is highly regrettable that TRS MPs remained silent when Amit Shah made those controversial remarks in the Parliament,” he said. He also questioned the silence of Telangana BJP leaders on the issue. CLP leader in Assembly Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, AICC Secretaries Bose Raju, Saleem Ahmed and Vamshichand Reddy, TPCC working presidents Ponnam Prabhakar and Kusum Kumar, MLA T Jagga Reddy, DCC presidents and other important leaders participated in the review meeting.
