Continuing our study of significant bear markets (Stage 4 declines). I thought it would be interesting to look at a snapshot of all the major lows on the daily charts, without what happened next, to help remove any preconceptions of what we think a low should be with the actual data from the past Stage 4 lows. As many online and in the media suggest that we need to see capitulation before the bear market can end. But the charts say otherwise, as capitulation is not how most have ended, and that type of thinking suggests recency bias, which may be due to the rapid declines of the last two Stage 4 bear markets in 2020 and late 2018. So study the charts for yourself to help to remove any bias you may have.
Below it the daily charts of the Nasdaq Composite from the last 40 years.
