Sharpest Equity Market Rally During A Recession at Trader’s Narrative




Sharpest Equity Market Rally During A Recession

This bear market we’ve just had (is it over?) has been one fit for superlatives. So why not its inevitable counter-rally (or is it a bull market?).

The chart below is from economist David Rosenberg who now plies his trade at Gluskin & Sheff. In it he points out that what we’ve seen since the spring of this year is the Sharpest Equity Market Rally Ever in the Context of Pricing Out of the Recession:

That’s a 54% rise from March 9th 2009 to September 11th, 2009. The closest rally in comparison is 44% in 1929-1933.

Is this recession over? No one really knows. But the sharpest rally ever from within a recession is just one more notch in the belt of this bat$hit insane market.

I, for one, look forward to becoming a curmudgeon and poking my grand kids with my walnut walking stick as I regale them with tales from the bear markets of 2000 and 2008.

    “Sharpest Equity Market Rally Ever in the Context of Pricing Out of the Recession” - is this a quote from David Rosenberg?

    yes, if I recall correctly it is (at worst, it is a clumsy rewording of what he said)
