San Antonio experts in the market say they're not worried about today's cliff drop on Wall Street, and say you shouldn't be worried either, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

  "We have been in this strong bull market for over six years now, since 2009," Amaury Conti, Research Director at San Antonio's Sendero Wealth Management, told News Radio 1200 WOAI.

  "Technically speaking, this is a normal correction."

  Conti says several factors entered into today's drop on Wall Street, none of which indicates that there are any serious problems with the U.S. economy.

  "We're still seeing growth in Europe and in the United States," he said.  "The United States fundamentals are still positive."

  Conti says two main factors helped bring about this correction, which he pointed out has been predicted for some time.

  One is something which is essentially good for the economy, the fact that commodities prices have fallen.

  "Energy prices come down, commodity prices have come down as well," he said.

  When the price of commodities, be it oil or gold, that makes the companies that handle these commodities worth less.  In fact, oil and gas companies have led the correction, and have been in bear territory a lot longer than the general market.

  The other main factor is an indication that the Chinese economy has finally fallen off of it's rapid pace, and is in for a lot slower growth.

  "China slowing down should not be a surprise."

  Conti says there is nothing happening which truly is negative.  He says this is nothing like the stock market tumble in 2008, which was caused by falling housing prices and the serious problems which faced huge financial houses like Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, as well as insurers like AIG.
