How Bad Is the Market Today? [2008 Archive]

Here are some takes on 2008 stock market performance.

Yes, that little box on the left is 2008 so far this year.
Some additional commentary is here and here along with some in-depth academic discussion here.  For us statisticians that”s a nice Normal Distribution (a bit skewed to the upward trend side, which matches the historical “10% average gain” of the S&P500 or just due to having small data set).

What do you think?  What will it take to transform 2008 and 2009 up the scale?
