As the current bull market continues into its ninth year, investors wait for the next big correction and the volatility that would accompany it. Since the financial crisis, events that have led to volatility spikes have been short-lived and had minimal impact on the market over the long term.
Note: Rolling three-year annualized standard deviation of the S&P 500 index is used throughout as measure of market volatility. Sources: Bloomberg LP, Morningstar Inc.
