The bond market has been an ever-shrinking drag on the stock market over the last several decades, with an average decline of 2% annually from 1955 to the present.
This has been especially pronounced over the past two decades.
During the peak of the stock-market bubble, the market’s average decline was 5.7%.
As we know from the chart above, the stock markets have been on a downward trajectory for a long time, and the current low of 2.8% is a far cry from the highs of the 1990s and early 2000s.
The market has also been on the verge of crashing for some time.
It was in 2007 that the Federal Reserve and other central banks started a series of “quantitative easing” programs, which pushed up interest rates and, ultimately, the overall stock market.
These measures helped to drive the market down by as much as 1% annually during the early part of this decade, before peaking at 3.8%.
The market had fallen by more than 1% every year since at least 1997.
But the recent market crash, coupled with the Fed’s decision to end QE, has led to a reversal of that trend, with the market now showing some signs of recovery.
For the past several years, the markets have also been getting worse.
The chart below shows the share of market capitalization that is owned by the private sector in each of the last 20 years.
We see a marked decline in the share in the 1990 and 2000s, with just a slight recovery from the lows of the late 1990s, and a slight uptick in the late 2000s and 2011.
That trend is unlikely to continue.
However, the recent fall in the market is more pronounced than previous ones.
In the chart below, we see the share owned by hedge funds, private equity funds, and venture capital funds.
The last time we saw a dramatic drop in this sector was in 2008, when they lost over half of their market cap.
In contrast, the share that is now owned by investors has remained fairly stable.
This trend is not expected to continue, as investors have shown signs of buying up some of the stocks that have been losing market share.
With the stock sector still having a strong head start, the next big hurdle for the market will be the growth in the number of businesses that have a market cap of over $1 billion.
As of the end of the fourth quarter of 2017, the number owned by private equity and venture capitalists has more than doubled, and is now at over $6 trillion.
The number owned in general stock and bonds has also increased significantly.
If we add in all the businesses that are listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange, we find that the share is now over $3 trillion, with a strong concentration of assets in technology, retail, healthcare, and education.
This means that it is unlikely that the market can continue to continue to rise as fast as it has done in recent years.
And if it continues to do so, investors will likely need to take additional steps to protect themselves.
While the market may not be back to the peaks of the past, it is still likely to be very volatile.
We should keep in mind that this is a long-term trend that will likely continue.
