History tells us that investments can go down as well as up.

It’s a well-worn, renowned disclaimer designed to provide a warning to all.  Less well known is the pattern that financial markets have followed throughout history. In the financial world, this pattern is referred to as the cycle of Bull and Bear Markets.

Some financial advisers may suggest steering clear of the financial markets when a Bear Market is seemingly around the corner.
