Thanks for the link, good data.

I think the data is helpful to point out to many (usually younger posters) that will look at more recent returns and now presume that more recent returns are guaranteed in the future.

The S&P500 was launched in 1957.
My postings are my opinion, and never should be construed as a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any particular investment.
