Chart Comparison to 1973-74

The chart above, courtesy of Bill Cara, shows the S&P 500 from May 15, 2008 through Nov 11, covering 126 days, compared to the period from Apr 2, 1974 through Apr 1, 1975.

The 1973-1974 bear market was a horrible time and one of the worst bear markets on record. This chart shows that our current bear market is following a similar course as that one, from which we did recover.

The bottoming process continues.
