Is the S&P 500 Bear Market Over?

By definition, a bear market is when price drops 20% or more from its recent or all time highs.  So for the S&P 500 ticker /ES one could say that technically speaking the bear market is over because price is now approximately 15% off the all time high set back in October 2021.

But is the recent run up simply a "Bear Market Rally" or are the bulls firmly back in charge gunning for new all time highs?  See this before your next trade!

Technical Analysis or News?

There's been a long running debate between the technical analysis chartists and the fundamentalists and both sides can make their case for being "right".  Both sides often think that their way is best and the other side is full of you know what...

Since no one can predict the future how did China's Evergrande crisis that's filled the news just so happen to occur during a time when chartists like us were anticipating a potential pull back?
