S&P Index from 1825 to 2008
The graph below is an interesting depiction of the S&P Index’s annual returns since 1825. Of the 184 years 70% were positive and 30% negative. The 2008 year-to-date return is -36.7%, resulting in the red block moving one category to the right since the graph was constructed. The jury is out on whether the bounce will be strong enough to make the year look more respectable.
