    Have you checked if top ten results have been affected as well? If not, then its probably just you.

    Check for a plethora of inbound links, could be a negative SEO attack. If the site is new, I wouldn't worry about it too much, it could just be a dance.

    I noticed a fluctuation a few days back, but they have settled back to where they where minus a couple of positions. I'm checking now and will report back if I see any major changes.

    I saw some upward movement on one site 2 days ago. Tons of unannounced updates happen all the time. For now, wait and see what happens over the next few days or even two weeks before making any changes.

    Is your niche seasonal? It might be because of the holidays. This always happens.

    Your site's probably been Panderwanked. Lots and lots of sites are getting Panderwanked under the new Hummingturd algorithm. I don't know of a solution to panderwanking right now but I'm sure most "white hat" blogs will have more info in 9 to 12 months from now.
