What Happens in a Recession? Larry Cheng Weighs In


The Bull Market Run Has Officially Ended. Now What?

Two days ago, on March 11, 2020, headlines declared the end of the longest bull market run in history. Now what? This is the question we asked Larry Cheng (albeit a few days BEFORE the historic week we just experienced). Check out his original post,” What Happens in a Recession,” and watch our newest video commentary.

“Sometimes we forget what happens during recession times. They feel like ages ago.  However, whenever the next one does happen, we can have some sort of guidance or indicator of what it might look like based on our prior experiences in the last two – specifically ’08 and the Dot-Com Bust of 2000.”
