The Four Totally Bad Bear Recoveries: Where Is Today's Market?

These charts are not intended as a forecast but rather as a way to study the current market in relation to historic market cycles.


Footnote: When we first began featuring this comparison about nine years ago, we used the Dow for the first event and the S&P 500 for the other three. However, we're now including a pair of total return versions of the chart, which requires dividend data. Thus we're now using the S&P 90 for the first bear market which we have dividend data. The S&P 90 was a daily index launched by Standard & Poor's in 1926 and preceded the S&P 500, which dates from March 1957.

Inflation adjustment is based on the Consumer Price Index.
