Dissecting the day's major business news, with the Fast Money traders. Are the pillars of the market collapsing under the economic data? Looking for correction protection. With Ralph Acampora, Altaira Investment Solutions.

Declines in the stock market suggest a healthy trend, Ralph Acampora of Altaira Investment Solutions said Wednesday.

"You're getting quality rotation," he said. "The sectors that look spectacular are the pillars for the next leg up, or they've been part of it already, are these financials, the industrials. No one's talking about technology. I don't hear anyone talking about semiconductors. They're on fire."

The Dow Jones Industrial Average suffered its worst one-day drop in nearly two months, tumbling 216.95 points, or 1.43 percent, to close at 14,960.59, The S&P 500 slumped 22.48 points, or 1.38 percent, to end at 1,608.90. And theNasdaq dropped 43.78 points, or 1.27 percent, to finish at 3,401.48.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," the market technician said that he had been worried about two weeks ago amid talk of a market melt-up.

Gold Could Plummet to $1,200: Pro
Unless the U.S. dollar rolls over, there's more downside in gold prices, Galtere founder Renee Haugerud says.

"The last thing a bull like me wants to see is buying panic, so I'm enjoying this selloff, and I hope it continues," he said. "And I think it will. And that's going to be a great opportunity to, not only hold those groups, but maybe in that decline you start taking a look at the utilities and the REITs again."

However, Acampora warned against jumping into that trade too soon.

"I think it's a little too early for that," he said.

Acampora said that stocks could head toward their 200-day moving averages, about a 10 percent pullback.

"This decline is broadening out," he added, noting that the DAX broke out from a double-top and that emerging markets made new lows.

"It's a global affair, and I think it's long overdue," he said. "And I'm very happy."

Acampora also looked to gold's short-term low in April, seeing its short-term trading range around $1,320 to $1,485.

"The longer-term is questionable," he said. "Until that $1,321 breaks, I'd say the odds are that gold stabilizes here."
