This is a warning. 3810 is a very critical level at the S&P 500, and futures are down more than 2% today. We`re flirting with a support level of around 3,900, but the real panic can set in at around 34,000. What is that supposed to mean? It means that the S&P 500 will go down in a bear market. And that is a sign of stocks that are going down in value.
Since 1928 and the big stock market crash, the S&P 500 has plummeted into a bear market 26 times. A bear market is where the market is down more than 20% or more than that in a two-month period.
Not only that. A bear market can also be part of a recession where the economy has high unemployment and negative GDP output.
The average decline in a bear market was 35,6% since 1928, and the average length of time was 289 days.
Again; this is a very critical level.
