S&P500 - Peak to Trough
We have chosen to use the S&P500 to reflect market volatility as it's the largest stock market in the world.
Bear markets cannot be timed or anticipated, they're in effect random. What we can plan against is our reaction to them, which will be to do nothing and ride them out, the only 'strategy' that historically would have worked.
