Following Monday's (2/5) precipice drop that saw the Dow Jones Industrial Index enter correction mode (a 10% move from peak to trough), the market closed Tuesday (2/6) broadly higher following a volatile, seesaw session that saw all indices open at fresh lows, rally up to positive territory to sell of negatively again at lunchtime before showing strength to rally up ~2% across the board into the close. Tuesday saw the heaviest trading of the year day with 12.35 billion shares changing hands on the consolidated tape. This is nearly double the daily average and was larger than Monday's 11.5 billion shares.

In this special edition of Advisory Live, Chris Dearborn, Managing Director, Nasdaq Market Intelligence Desk and Massud Ghaussy, Senior Analyst, Nasdaq Advisory Services discuss the recent market volatility.
