Today and Yesterday's Bear Market

New York Times has an interesting chart that compares the present bear market of 2008 with the rest of the bear markets of yesterday.
The present bear market appears to track the 1942 or the 1973/74 bear market except the momentum is quite similar to the 1942 than 1973/74 bear market. It is hopeful that we are tracking the 73/74 market or 1st part of 1932 as we have the second World War in the 1942 market.

The comparison chart can be viewed by clicking the following picture.

If one cannot get the interactive features of selecting and comparing the graph, one will have to download the latest version of flash player here.
