Bull & Bear Markets: A Timeline

Bull & Bear Markets: A Timeline. Before 2020, the financial sector enjoyed one of the longest bull markets in history. Beginning in March 2009, the covid 19 pandemic ended this run in March 2020. However, recovery was swift, and a new bull market started in April that same year. As we face an uncertain road ahead, let's take a look at history's most recent bull and bear markets, as outlined by the S&P 500. Sources 1 and 2. Investing involves risks, and investment decisions should be based on your own goals, time horizon and tolerance for risk. The S&P 500 is an unmanaged index that is generally considered representative of the U.S. stock market. Index performance is not indicative of the past performance of a particular investment. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Individuals cannot invest directly in an index.Bull & Bear Markets: A Timeline.
