Interesting historical perspective on market corrections

Published by on

Over the last 4 years we have not experienced a market correction. This stability is very unusual and the volatility we have seen during the past few weeks is very normal and healthy.

 

This illustration shows how many days the S&P500 has gone without a correction—the larger spikes indicate longer periods of price stability/increases, and this has been the third longest period of stability on record.
