An Equity Correction?

Equity futures are pointing up this morning and chatter is that this is the end of the "correction". While I personally do believe a broader correction in the equity market is likely given current valuations (in my opinion 'technicals' remain strong and 'fundamentals' are okay), a market that is down 2% over a three week time frame is NOT a correction.

Yes, in the (brief) year that is 2010, asset class returns have thus far favored anything "fixed income", but after a 60%+ run up in equities (from March '09 lows), I am not sure how this 2% downturn can be considered anything, but noise.
