Forse viene battuto il record di tranquillità sui mercati di sempre!
How quiet is this record-setting stock market? By at least one measure, the S&P 500 index is on pace to register is lengthiest period of quiescence in more than two decades—and perhaps ever.
The broad-market benchmark hasn’t experienced a decline of at least 3% since Nov. 7, 2016. That 234-day span registers as the second-longest period without a single-session drop of that magnitude since the 241 days from Jan. 26, 1995 to Jan. 9, 1996, according to Pension Partners’ Charles Bilello (see table below):
An unnatural stretch of placid markets comes as the S&P 500, the Dow Jones Industrial DJIA, -0.14% and the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -0.18% have embarked upon one of the most resilient climbs to all-time highs. Neither a parade of hurricanes, earthquakes in Mexico, the threat of nuclear war in the Korean Peninsula, equity valuations seen as too rich, nor anxieties about the White House have disrupted this bull market rally that has entered its ninth year.
Bilello points out that the S&P 500 is on pace for its ninth consecutive year in the green, which would match a similar streak from 1991 to 1999 (see table below).
