What Will You Remember From 2011?

The year 2011 could be remembered for the unsettling volatility seen in the S&P 500 index, a measure of large company US stocks. January offered a promising start with a 2% gain and by April, the S&P was up 8%. Wobbling followed during May and June, and volatility really began in mid-July with the index diving 17% in just 11 days. In August, the index rose or fell 4%+ on 5 of 6 consecutive days.

Market Turbulence

October was quite a month from an S&P 500 standpoint. The index grew 10.9%, its largest growth month since 1991. This growth spurt followed, as you may recall, 5 consecutive months of decline.

We’re certainly seeing big daily, weekly and monthly swings in stock market indices…. turbulent times indeed. But, with stock markets, shouldn’t we expect a degree of turbulence? Since 1980, for example, the average intra-year (that is, during each calendar year) S&P 500 decline exceeded 14%. Restated, the average high-to-low decline during those calendar years exceeded 14%.
