A modest continuation of last week's selloff has morphed into something way more, with the DJIA down 1.3K points one hour before the bell.
The S&P 500 is lower by 4.4%, and the Nasdaq by 3.4%.
Into this steps Ray Dalio. The hedge funder may have top-ticked the market on Jan. 23 when - holding court in Davos - he said the average Joe was going to feel pretty stupid for holding cash. With the Dow down about 2.5K points since, Dalio today says the selloff is typical late-cycle behavior.
The decline may seem sizable, but is hardly a blip on a long-term chart, he adds, and there's plenty of cash on the sidelines waiting to buy.
