How to use correction in a sentence?

  1. Julio Croda:

    That correction was due to pressure.

  2. Gu Yongtao:

    Today's correction, following previous days' strong rebound, is natural, it's different from the panic selling we saw previously, when liquidity dried up and investors couldn't sell their shares.

  3. Philip Blancato:

    This is a normal garden variety correction, with levels that set the playing field a little bit, the reality is that the energy sector continues to be a catalyst for concern. So for today's market, if oil gives us any modicum of stabilization, I think the overall market could be relatively flat to up today.

  4. Kelly Bogdanov:

    Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen really struck a tone between dovish and hawkish, and I think delivered, for the most part, what the market needed. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen was dovish enough to signal that a March rate hike is probably off the table but hawkish enough to leave the impression Federal Reserve is confident the economic recovery will persist, that's very important for stocks because as long as we can avoid a recession, this correction will probably work itself out and we'll have the opportunity to bounce back.

  5. David Kelly:

    Going forward it's going to be very hard to achieve the same gains that we've achieved, or anything like them, the U.S. stock market rally could continue but at some stage there's going to be a significant correction, and the more it goes up the more it's going to correct.
