By MEGHAN CUMMINGSThe Dow Jones Industrial Average is down more than 2,600 points on Tuesday morning as the economy remains in a funk and concerns mount about a potential collapse in the economy.
The market has been struggling to make money and investors have been taking their bets on a possible recession and potential market collapse.
Investors are also looking to get out of stocks and other assets that have been underperforming due to concerns about the economy, including housing, energy and even tech stocks.
There is also speculation that China may be slowing down and the economy could become weaker than it has been in the past.
A strong market rally on Tuesday would give investors some breathing room to put money in stocks and risky assets like debt.
It could also mean investors are more likely to invest in the future when the economy recovers.
The Dow’s recent slide has been fueled by investors betting that the U.S. Federal Reserve will soon raise interest rates to combat a slowing economy.
President Donald Trump is also pushing to get a stimulus package through Congress.
In the end, investors may need to wait until the next rally, which is expected to be higher.
Some analysts think that if the market stays up for long, investors will be rewarded with higher returns.
