By Business Insider

  • Stock markets have fallen sharply in 2022 as the Fed has hiked rates and Russia has invaded Ukraine.
  • Some meme stocks are down 80%, while tech companies have been left battered and bruised.
  • Here are four charts that explain what’s going on in the sell-off of 2022.

Stocks have tumbled this year.

The Federal Reserve has hiked rates, bringing the easy-money era to a screeching halt. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has sent oil prices spiking. And investors are worried about red-hot inflation and slowing global growth.

The S&P 500 had fallen more than 16% from recent highs as of Thursday’s close. The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 had cratered roughly 26%.

It’s been something of a car crash.
