What to Watch After Stocks Decline

Stocks declined on concerns about the Chinese economy Thursday, but what’s ahead for next week and beyond?

On “Fast Money,” trader Guy Adami said the S&P 500 was trading around the same levels at which the market topped out in May 2008.

Adami was expecting to look at what stocks do for the next day or so to tell the tale of where the market is trending.

Trader Anthony Scaramucci expected to see “massive stimulus from the government of China,” saying that Beijing was propping up companies to stave off unemployment.

One other headwind was looming, he said: Once the credit dries up, it will be tough to bring it back.

“We all know a correction’s coming,” said trader Joe Terranova. “I think the ultimate question is what do you do with that correction and how deep is that correction?”

Terranova pointed to companies with strong earnings, noting that Peet’s Coffee and Yum! Brands closed at or near 52-week highs.
