Thanks for the Memories: The Bull Market Nears 10-Year Mark

The bull market was born 10 years ago in March. We highlight some high (and low) points.

We know, of course, when the bull market began: March 9, 2009, when Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index closed at 676.53—down 57% from its previous high. The question every investor is asking now is, “When will it end?” It’s possible the end has come already and we just don’t know it yet.
