Ever since World War II, there have been 17 bear markets.

And right now, 61% of the companies in the S&P are in bear territory. 

Which begs the question, when the bears come out… how long will it last?

Well, let’s take a look at all the bear markets since WWII…


As you can see from the chart above…

On average, a bear market will last about a year… and will cause roughly a 30% drop in the market.

But that doesn’t mean that the next bear market won’t drop lower than that.

For example, the market dropped 56.8% during the 2007-2008 recession.

Which is why it’s extremely important that you do not buy-and-hold stocks right now.

Because when the bears come out, buy-and-hold investors are the first ones to lose their money. 

You do not want to sit in a stock position when the entire market could fall off a cliff at any moment.

In fact, it’s much safer to trade the market when it starts going bearish. 

That’s because you can move in, take your money, and move out.

That’s why Stock Navigators are taking their profits as soon as they get them.
