The "crash" of which the person who has never studied investment finance speaks from Mar. 31, 2010 to trough was 12.5%.Okay, let me 'spain this to you one more time. As the stock market was in a free fall Bernanke started QE1 (Quantitative Easement ONE) which ended in March 2010 and did boost the stock market which crashed just as soon as QE1 ended.
If 12.5% is a "crash," how should investors describe the 58% free fall in the closing months of G.W.Bush's term or the 33.2% drop in three months of 1987 during the R.Reagan fiasco?
The Class should be tolerant of the rube. His posts make it clear that he has no real world experience in The Market. He is the classic example of why brokerage houses are advised not to deal with investors who have no understanding of market volatility.
