Expect volatility to stick around for a while, although the market is acting like it is in a bottoming phase, pros told CNBC Thursday.
"We think [volatility is] healthy for the market," John Stoltzfus, managing director and chief market strategist at Oppenheimer, said in an interview with "Closing Bell."
"If anything that bottoming phase could be longer than shorter."
The Dow Jones industrial average has seen a trading range of 200 or more points every day so far this year.
"What we learned over the last few years is that volatility tends to create opportunities as well as indicate risk," Stoltzfus said.
