Putting things into perspective

The last 10 years have been brutal, right? How many have made 45% returns in the last 10 years? How about 90%? Sure, this isn't the 1990's, but 45% buy and hold through the "Great Recession" isn't bad.

So I guess the assumption is that the buy and holders who held all through this will continue to hold since they aren't down by much now and the Dow is going to 20,000 ......

I'm not making any assumptions. Just pointing out that the last 10 years, on a pure performance basis, have been pretty good.

Didn't mean you personally, just meant that resistance is usually where supply meets demand, guess i have a different perspective


many stocks were wiped out, many buy and holders lost their life savings and are back to work , even bond holders in GM , "the safest of all"? buy and hold doesn't work in IMO , also what is your start date and why?

Except that would only be through the recovery phase of the recession not from beginning of the recession to end - that's quite a different story. Very nice job of selctively choosing a period of time on the chart that favors your contention.

Lighten up, man. Mis-information? WTF?

True, any time frame can be used to support any "mis-information". But I hardly cherry picked 10 years from today. What would have been better, 11 years, 3 months, 8 days and 4 hours? Perhaps 13 years, 8 months, 22 days and 6 hours?

Do you think I've been waiting for the last 3 years to make this post, just hoping the market would rise so I could provide you with "mis-information"? I was just going through some charts this morning, thought to myself "I wonder what the performance has been over the last 10 years"? I was quite surprised.

I'm not trying to start a debate about buy and hold. Probably a poor choice of words on my part. As the title states, I was just trying to add a little perspective to the constant negative news flow that we've had for what seems like forever. This was just something I found interesting, 10 years of performance, from today.
