Int his video we update where the current bear market is within the mega-bear market template. Mega-bears have three phases and the last phase is an accelerated decline that typically lasts 3 to 6 months.
The current bear could enter the accelerated decline phase anywhere from a week to 8 weeks from now. The accelerated decline phase usually coincides with the recession. The worst decline in the S&P 500 occurs from two months before the start of the recession to three months after.
We also compare the current bear to 1973-1974 and 1968-1970 (inflationary ones) and 2000-2002. There are similarities to all three bears.
