Three Year Stock Market Analysis
The S&P 500 alone is up over 40% when looking at the past three year spread and it is up more than 16% just for 2019 alone.
Despite rumblings of an impending recession, trade standoffs and yield curve inversions, it is clear to see that for the past three years the stock market has remained in favor of the investor.
69 Year Stock Market Analysis
If you look at the data on the fluctuations of the stock market over the past 69 years you can see that there were certainly many instances when a year was ended in the negative.
However, it is also clear that despite these negative drops, the stock market remains resilient and has been able to bounce back 60% of the time having that year ending in the positive.
The point? The time to panic is definitely not now.
Historical Standards for Stock Market Investments
