Stock Market Study: How Long After a 10%+ “Small Correction” to Make New Highs?

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018 May 27, 2018 - 06:06 PM GMT

By: Troy_Bombardia


The S&P 500 made a 10%+ “small correction” from January- February 2018. In a previous study I looked at how long it usually takes  for the stock market to go from its correction bottom to a new all time high.

In today’s study I’m going to look at how long it usually takes for the S&P 500 to go from an old all-time high to making a new all time high.

Here are the historical 10%+ “small corrections”, as defined by the Medium-Long Term Model.

  1. April 2, 2012
  2. July 16, 2007
  3. January 3, 2000
  4. July 19, 1999
  5. October 8, 1997
  6. April 14, 1997
  7. May 23, 1996
  8. January 3, 1990
  9. August 27, 1986
  10. September 25, 1967
  11. June 29, 1965
  12. September 23, 1955

Here’s how long it took for the S&P to go from a pre-correction high to a new post-correction high.

April 2, 2012

It took 98 days for the S&P 5 make a new all time high.

July 16, 2007

It took 58 days for the S&P to make new highs.

January 3, 2000

It took 54 days for the S&P to make new highs.

July 19, 1999

It took 85 days for the S&P to make new highs.

October 8, 1997

It took 40 days for the S&P to make new highs.

February 19, 1997

It took 52 days for the S&P to make new highs.

May 23, 1996

It took 78 days for the S&P to make new highs.

January 3, 1990

It took 102 days for the S&P to make new highs.

August 27, 1986

It took 68 days for the S&P to make new highs.

September 25, 1967

It took 147 days for the S&P to make new highs.

May 13, 1965

It took 92 days for the S&P to make new highs.

September 23, 1955

It took 35 days for the S&P to make new highs.


Here’s how long it took historical 10%+ “small” corrections to make a new high.

  1. 0 – 21 days (1 month):
  2. 22 – 42 days (2 months): 11
  3. 43 – 63 days (3 months): 1111
  4. 64 – 84 days (4 months): 11
  5. 85 -105 days (5 months): 111
  6. 106 – 126 days (6 months): 
  7. More than 6 months: 1

As you can see, it usually took 2 – 5 months for the S&P 500 to make a new all time high. There was one exception that took 7 months.

This study suggests that the S&P 500 will probably make a new high by the end of June 2018 (5 months from January 2018). It should definitely make a new high by the end of August 2018 (7 months from January 2018).
