Bear Bull Historical Chart

Recommended Posts

History of the US Bear Bull markets since 1926 (or why it always seems to take forever for a bear market to come along or why am I always losing money betting on the next bear market)

@andysinclair, it is interesting isn't, the similarities in the % Total Return for each bull run caught my eye. 

I got it as a picture grab off twitter with no other doc but a google image search shows it has been used in a number of articles listed on this search page linked.

That was very interesting. 

As I am have stated in many posts strong upward trends can last a lot longer than one thinks. Generally downward trends last a lot less, are more quicker and sharper.

That's right @TrendFollower, a long slow hard grind upward followed by a short sharp correction when it's considered the run has been over extended. A pattern which is repeated like a fractal in all the lower time frames, the market always overshoots, both in the bull phase and the bear phase.

@Caseynotes, yes it does. 

We are seeing this in dramatic fashion right now. If you look at Natural Gas, Orange Juice and Lumber charts over the past couple of years then you will see the long move upwards and the sharp and quick correction downwards.

    • Perhaps even less stellar is that none of the essential "Greeks", except for Implied Volatility, are published for any Options on Indexes and Commodities. Options are therefore impossible to price in order to judge "fair value" using any of the traditional metrics. Also since "Theta" is missing one has no idea of the time decay in valuation etc. etc... An account with a futures broker seems the only way if one is serious about Index or Commodity options. I also have an account with Nabtrade, which allows buying calls and puts, as well as writing covered calls for many individual shares but does not allow writing puts, covered or otherwise. What's a punter to do I ask you...?
    • I joined IG  to trade Options chains. and when i enquired i was told i could do this on the Spread Betting platform.  No mention of  needing to telephone in - feel both surprised and disappointed. most likely will close ac. as do not understand why this information was not mentioned
