2002-2003 Bear Market Bottoming Process

Here is a chart of the 2002-2003 Bear Market Bottoming Process which made three bottoms between July 2002 and March 2003.

RSI, relative strength index, bottomed first on high volume at B1=797.70

Price bottomed next on lower volume with a lower closing low on October 9, 2002 at B2=776.76.

The start of the war in Iraq caused a third bear market low at B3=800.73. B3 was about 3.1% higher than B2.

Triple bottoms are rare and can proceed very powerful rallies.

In 2003, the S&P500 gained 28.5% (chart) while my "newsletter explore portfolio" gained 77%. My stocks have done their best early in the bull market cycles.

I hope my newsletter explore portfolio repeats that exceptional performance if the market does as well as Brinker seems to be indicating. Then again, Brinker had a gift horse buying opportunity when the S&P500 was at 1450 and he's been fully invested since the very top so you have to take his predictions with a grain of salt.
