On an average, it takes around 30 months for a bear market to end but the one in 2020 was short-lived
A bear market is defined as a market that falls more than 20% from its most recent peak. With multiple issues such as the Russia-Ukraine conflict and inflation dogging stocks around the world, major global indices such as the Nasdaq have collapsed into a bear market. The Nifty, however, is still in correction mode and not in outright bear market. It has dropped just about 10% from its recent peak around the 18,500 mark.
