Its now official, the S&P 500, DJIA and DJTA Indexes have all broken below their November 21, 2008 lows. A clear Dow Theory confirmation of a continued US Bear Market, at least for awhile longer. The Nasdaq has yet to do so but I consider it a secondary index.
The Canadian TSX Composite Index is teetering on the edge of doing the same thing. On February 24th it went below its November low during mid-day trading. So there is little hope that Canada will avoid more downside as well.
We should expect the bear market to retrace something more than the ~50 percent loss to date. This bear market is now officially the second largest market loss since 1929-1932 (-89%).
