Stocks turned around Friday after six days of sell-offs.

The S&P 500 (^GSPC) rose 1.59%, or 43.43 points as of 9:33 a.m. ET, setting the index on pace to snap its six-day losing streak. The Dow (^DJI) rose 1.54%, or 384.84 points, after losing a total of 1300 over the two days prior. The Nasdaq (^IXIC) advanced 2.41%, or 176.52 points.

It has been a wild week for stocks, and experts’ explanations for the factors contributing to the sell-off included higher rates, a more hawkish Federal Reserve, midterm elections and trade tensions. Regardless of the catalyst, at least some strategists argue that market volatility is nothing to fear – especially at this time of year.
