Has anybody else noticed the pattern in the last month that on down days value out performs growth and on up days growth out performs value. Not looking to do anything with that just interesting.
Yes. Growth funds have gone from more consistent outperformance vs value to the more recent mixed bag, following the pattern you describe, with a little deviation here and there as I recall. It's interesting because value now has a reputation as something of a modest safe-haven in bad times, relative to growth, and we are seeing that contention actually play out on a day to day basis. as if the stars were all aligned.

I have suspicions about one aspect of what might be happening, but it's kinda pointless to articulate -I'm not going to change how I invest.

Dark financial times? Hardly! It’s more of a flat year, like 2015. Let’s save our pessimism for when things start to actually get interesting. :beer

Total return of Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Admiral Shares (VTSAX) is up 1.72% year to date. This is hardly a catastrophe.
