Full Market Cycle

A full market cycle consists of both a bull and a bear market.  A full market cycle occurred from October 9, 2002, through March 9, 2009.  During March 2020, the S&P 500 Index declined by more than 20% from its February 19, 2020, peak, which technically qualified as a bear market to many investors.  However, the downturn was extremely short-lived and modest in comparison to the preceding bull market.  We would not classify the latest pullback as a bear market.
