Longest Bull Market in History? Our Newsroom Debates

TheStreet staff give their views on the current bull market.
Publish date:

Many reports are saying the current bull market is now the longest in American history, but is it really?

While Wall Street observers are quick to note that, at 3,500 days, the bulls have clocked their longest reign in history, others see Aug. 22 as a meaningless market memento (Dow 20K, anyone?). 

Regardless, since touching a bear market low of about 676 on March 9, 2009, the S&P 500 has rallied 323% and corporate America has seen the sun rise and fall on its fair share of highly successful earnings seasons.

Now the question is, can the party continue?

Watch as TheStreet staff shares its views on whether this really is the longest bull market in history and how long it will continue.
