The new normal? The activity in the stock market seems to be returning to normal, though it is something of a new normal. A chart of the Dow Jones Industrial Average over the past few months shows a line gently sloping downward for several months, and then a big plunge in August. After that we saw a few days of peaks and valleys, and the straight line appears to be resuming—though at a level nearly 2,000 points lower.
