More Bear Markets have bottomed in October than any other month since WWII.

Half of the 12 bear markets in the S&P500 since WWII have ended in the month of October.  Four of them ended in the first 11 days of October.  This tendency may relate to a Q3 earnings season as well as the historical seasonal strength of the fourth quarter.  Notable bear market bottoms occurred on Oct. 3, 1974, Oct. 11, 1990 and Oct. 9, 2002.  The current market drop is increasingly acting as if it has bottomed or is within days of a bottom.   Jeb Terry, Sr. Oct. 7, 2011
