History shows why it doesn’t pay to bet against US stocks



'We need something now:' Strategist explains importance of stimulus deal


In a matter of days, the S & P 500 12%, and fell into bear market. The anatomical board, on the first day of the drop point and the S & P 500 set records, which controls the ships were the uses of history and memory books otherwise March panic.

Market crashes have become something of a rite of spring in financial history. However, looking at some of the biggest panics in recent memory, one thing remains clear that the US does not pay to bet on the tree.

It is undeniable that Americans endured a year like no other. US economy suffered its worst contraction on record remains high and the labor market crisis, but Wall Street has staged a stunning recovery. 38% chance is up, the Dow Jones over the past 12 months, buoyed by a steady flow of support from the Federal Reserve, a firehose Congress of unprecedented fiscal and development of vaccines.

Rewind a dozen years, and topped off with some panic headlines March, 2009 signed this week, at the bottom of the recession and the collapse of that great actor.

And it was very different reasons: Financial tanked the subprime mortgages is the whole real estate market. The investment banks and the economy of the knees of a global teetered have them brought. Central banks and governments around the world to restore his control. And again, like weeds. March 2009, which was panic in the S & P is up 482%, (like Jupiter next step.)

The dot-com bubble

Rewind even further as the dot-com bubble at the turn of the last century. In the late 1990s, it just came to a speculative fury of the price-related companies have absolutely no earnings track record, and hardly a business plan.

Then in March 2000 to harden the Nasdaq market index was 400% in a short five years and hit a peak of 5,048. Which means. From the tech bubble burst and the Nasdaq has unraveled during this time hitting a low of 1,114 in 2002.

Today, the Nasdaq is over 13,000.

In hindsight most absurd arise.

There’s an old saying on Wall Street: “I do not ring a bell for the lows.” But if there is any history under the leadership of, an omen of the Ides of March is so bad that it is not according to all.
