Over the past nine years, the S&P 500 has recovered from 10% drawdowns in 54 days on average. However, as of 4/30/2018, it had still not recovered from the 10% drawdown seen in February. That’s 81 days! Considering the current stock market price levels, investors looking to realize the recovery will need to hold course – exercising more patience than similar periods in recent history.
