Stock markets in the United States have been in turmoil for months, with the S&P 500 losing nearly a third of its value in 2017.
The Dow Jones industrial average has lost nearly 40 per cent in 2017 and the Nasdaq Composite has shed more than 60 per cent.
The S&s stock market index fell more than 1 per cent on Monday and was down 4.2 per cent the day before.
A further fall would send it into negative territory for the first time in nearly two years.
“Investors are trying to get through this year with the stock market having lost over 1.5 per cent and we need to get that back up to a little bit above the average and get that moving again,” Ms Rousselle said.
While the market has seen some of the most extreme price movements in recent memory, Ms Russellle said the most recent drop in the S &Ps was not unusual.
She said many investors were still buying in to the current momentum of the S.&.;P 500, which has returned nearly 9 per cent since the start of the year.
Despite the recent sell-off, Ms Richesdale said investors were not in a panic and were still holding out hope for a stronger economy.
