Bull market gains – too much too soon

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

The chart below, courtesy of Jim Stack of Investech Research (via The Big Picture), shows that the duration of the current 22-month bull market is about half the average S&P 500 bull run since 1932.

However, the fact that the Index has gained more than 90% since its March 9 low (versus 56.1% on average after two years of previous bull markets) is of concern and argues that a pullback/correction is overdue. Not to mention the market’s overbullish, overvalued and overbought condition.
