Research Brief: A Synopsis of Historical Bear Markets

Research Brief: A Synopsis of Historical Bear Markets

On June 13th, the S&P 500 Index declined nearly 4% and finished the day down approximately 22% from its all-time high closing level from early January 2022. Thus, the S&P 500 officially entered bear market territory (defined by a 20% decline from an all-time high). In this brief analysis, I look back at historical bear markets since WWII to provide historical context on how the stock market has fared following the start of past bear markets. Specifically, I sought to address a variety of key questions that are no doubt on the minds of investors today:

  1. How much longer does it typically take for the market to bottom out?
  2. How much further does the market typically decline?
  3. How long does it typically take for the market to reclaim its prior peak?
