300 Point Rallies

Just something interesting…

Lowry’s Reports discovered that during the 2000-2003 bear market, there were sixteen three hundred-point up days in the DJIA. Despite these big surges, the market continued to make lower lows. That began in March 2000, and ended 3 years later in March 2003.

By contrast, this volatility was not present during the bull run from March 2003- October 2007. There were no three hundred-point up days during that entire period.

Bear market rallies tend to be much sharper than bull market advances. Volatility is higher, shorts have profits to protect, and bottom calls are rampant.

300-points up: The past bull market: None; the past bear market: 16.
