I’m calling this “Volatility Update #1” as I’m assuming more records will end in the coming weeks and months.
I recently wrote how the S&P 500 was experiencing its longest streak in history without a 0.6% daily decline. Today, the S&P 500 lost 0.67% ending the streak at 99 days. I’m assuming it will be decades, if not longer, before that streak is broken again.
A couple of the volatility-related records still in tact:
- Longest streak without back-to-back declines of at least 0.25%.
- Longest streak without a 5% correction
