The Dow closed down around 670 points, the biggest drop in two years. John Petrides is the Managing Director and Portfolio Manager at Point View Wealth Management, Inc. Petrides joins Cheddar to help explain why the market experienced such a drop today.

Petrides says interest rates could have had a part of the drop.

Petrides says this should be treated as a buying opportunity. When it comes to which sectors to focus on, Petrides thinks there will be more activity for the banking and financial sector. He also thinks the healthcare sector will also be strong as the world population continues to age.
