S&P moves into bear market territory

The S&P index has moved to a new low of 3841.54. In the process it took out the low price from last week at 3858.87.

At the low the index was down 20.28% from its 2022 high and all-time high reached on January 4. That takes index into “bear market territory”. Financially speaking a decline of 20% is considered a bear market.
