(Mark uses a “Bird’s Eye View” chart style, which shows the change from the previous high. All new high’s are at 100%, with pullbacks obviously less than 100%. It’s different, but informative. Bob)

Janet Yellen may not have raised interest rates this week, but Mr Bear couldn’t care less. We can see it in the market. In bull markets double-digit declines from an all-time high are reasons to buy. But EARLY in bear markets, recoveries from double digit declines are reasons to sell as we’ve seen since about mid-July. In the table below recoveries from double-digit Dow Jones declines last just a day or so before the market comes under selling pressure, again driving the Dow Jones down 10% or more from its May 2015 last all-time high.
