Levels & An Interesting Chart

August 8, 2019

blankThe recent selloff in the SPY was basically 4-down days.

The drop over those 4 days was 6%.

In the chart below, the histogram indicator shows the percent change of the market over 4 days.

If the period was down -6% or greater the bar is red.

As you can see, moves of this speed and size are rare.


Prior to this time frame it occurred in August of 2015 and then in several times in August and September of 2011.

May of 2010, and then quite a few times in the crash of 2008-09.
