Ninety Years of Bulls and Bears

Ninety Years of Bulls and Bears

Thursday, December 3, 2020 (8:30 AM - 9:30 AM) (EST)


A look-back at the past nine decades here in America and how the economy and markets reacted.  How does 2020 compare to the 1930’s and the Great Depression?  The 1960’s and the Viet Nam war and civil unrest?  The 2008 collapse of the markets and the Great Recession?

We will examine nine decades, beginning with the 1930’s and continuing through 2019.  How did the markets fair through all these years, how did interest rates react, what was the reaction of inflation and unemployment?

Also, see how five various hypothetical portfolios would have fared over the long term, through wars, recessions, political changes, economic bumps and slumps, and through human triumphs and tragedies.  In the past, long-term investors were rewarded, and investment success depends more on “time in the market” rather than “timing of the market”.

The information contained in this program is from Franklin Templeton Investments.  Thank you to Franklin Templeton for their research and insight into the past ninety years.
