BlackRock chief investment strategist on two catalysts for a correction

BlackRock chief investment strategist on two catalysts for a correction. What investors may want to consider is that even with all the good news, there's a lot of complacency in the market. It's hard to predict the timing, but we know that with volatility this low, there's not a lot of bad news discounted into the price of stocks. I think there are two things in the near term that could lead to a correction, one of which is impossible to predict. If the geopolitical situation worsens in Ukraine or the Middle East in a way that impacts oil - to me, that's the key transmission mechanism - that can derail the rally. The second issue, which I think is going to come up closer to the fall, is when investors start to think about when the Fed's going to tighten rates, changing monetary conditions at the margin.
