For those of you so eager to buy back in, it would be good to get educated on what a bear market actually is. It’s not just a term for stocks going down or a particularly deep dip to buy.
Bear markets act a certain way, last a certain amount of time and certainly don’t magically reset back into the last bull market we had. There will be a new bull market (at some point) but it likely will be very different from the nature of the one that is now dead and buried that we all loved so much from 2009 – 2020. Expect different market leadership, different return patterns and certainly a different duration.
The good news is that typically the sharper the drop into bear market territory, the quicker the recovery is.
