Markets Hit Highs In 2014
Calendar year 2014 turned out to be a positive year for the markets with all indices making a strong showing. The year had its dips, with strong drops in January of 3.5% and in both July and September of 1.4% each. As December went on, the market staged a strong rally, until it ran out of steam. In the last days of December 2014, the market began to falter. By then, the markets had been in strong upturn for the year, and since March 9, 2009 up 244%. The market began to look tired, as well it might after 70 months of this bull market.
