With October is coming to a close, the Dow Jones industrial average and the S&P 500 have been devastated, and the selling pressure of October has rattled some of the largest bulls on Wall Street. It’s important to note that this current bull market is nearing a decade long, and this selling could continue.

A Finviz review on Tuesday revealed that 200 members of the S&P 500 are still positive in 2018. This number shrinks when we look at the month of October, in which only 78 members of the S&P 500 are positive for the month.

It’s worth pointing out that the S&P 500 and Dow industrials are down 9.6% and 8.6% from their respective 52-week and all-time highs. On a year-to-date basis, the S&P 500 and Dow are down 1.1% and 1.2%, respectively.
