    Corrected: Flight from healthcare shares halts stock rally

    World stock markets gave up early gains as a continued flight from healthcare shares dragged on Wall Street, overshadowing upbeat economic data from China. The S&P 500 dipped as the healthcare index dived 3.4% to erase its year-to-date gains on continued fallout from concerns about potential changes to U.S. policy, including a "Medicare for All" proposal by Senator Bernie Sanders. "With a Democrat-controlled Congress, there is definitely more talk on regulating the sector and drug prices, which has negative headline risks," said Matthew Granski, director of strategy at Los Angeles-based Miracle Mile Advisors.

    [$$] One Year After VIX Blowup, Investors Still Feel Sting of Volatility Bets

    The ProShares Short VIX Short-Term Futures ETF is a way for investors to make bearish bets on volatility.

    Investors remain on edge even after big January comeback — and that might be a good thing

    The fragile psychology and tentative stance of market participants right now will probably serve the market well for a while, according to strategists. Traders are wary, shown in part by the stickiness of the Cboe Volatility Index hanging up near the somewhat elevated 20 threshold in recent weeks despite the rally. The public has continued to pull money from stock mutual and exchange-traded funds, on a net basis, even with the market finding its footing in the past month.
