Latest Sell Off Has Investors Asking Whats Going On Are Stocks The Safe Place To Be

What's going on? Maybe its time you stopped letting your retirement funds get hammered

The main worry is China. The day kicked off with the release of some really poor Chinese manufacturing data. It's the latest red flag that China's economy is still struggling. But the problem is no one knows just how bad it really is because Chinese government stats are notoriously unreliable.

It also didn't help that China's main stock market in Shanghai actually halted trading because stocks were down so much (about 7%).

As if that wasn't enough, Iran and Saudi Arabia are back at each other. That doesn't bode well for the Middle East, a key oil producing region. Oil prices have been super volatile lately. Crude oil is currently sitting at about $36.50 a barrel. Oil fell below $35 in mid-December, causing stock prices to fall.

CNNMoney's Fear & Greed Index, which looks at seven measures of investor sentiment, dipped into Fear territory on Monday.

Even tech stocks are getting hammered

By far and away the top stocks last year were Netflix and Amazon. But they had a queasy start to 2016. Here's how the tech darlings started the year:

Netflix (NFLX, Tech30) -4%

Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) -6% Not So Rosey. Is it?
