The S&P 500 index is flat for the year, but that hasn’t been due to a lack of volatility. The index has traded within a 259-point range in 2015. This year is shaping up to be a disappointment compared to the stellar returns on stocks in recent years: 13.5% in 2014, 32.2% in 2013,15.9% in 2012.

The outlook for 2016 is even worse.

These six charts make a very compelling case for a stock market correction in the near future.
