The S&P 500 Just Had its Scary 9-year Anniversary

The S&P 500 Just Had its Scary 9-year Anniversary

(New York)

Anniversaries offer an opportunity to gain perspective on the market. This week is no different. The S&P 500 just had its nine-year anniversary from its bottom of 666.79 in March 2009. Along the way there have been somewhere around 32 "panic attacks" according to analysts. But despite these, the market is now trading above 2,700.

FINSUM : So the real question is whether that 4x+ rise should make one nervous a new downturn is on the way, or comfortable that we are on an upward trend.
