The most productive bull market that came into being was the modern American history started at the end of the stagflation era in 1982 and got ended during the dotcom bust incident that took place in 2000’s.The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) gained a 16.8% annual returns during the period of this prevailing “secular” bull market . The NASDAQ, a tech-heavy exchange, augmented its value five times between 1995 and 2000, increasing from 1,000 to over 5,000 & this was a tremendous catch.
