Index Performance As Bull Market Turns 8 Years Old

This week(March 6 to be exact) the bull market in equities turned 8 years old.  That's significant since it's getting towards the long end of bull runs.  Whats interesting is how much divergence there actually has been in the major indices since that fateful turn.  Now this doesn't include dividends so actual returns are higher.

Still it's noteworthy to see the Nasdaq has absolutely crushed all other indexes. Also small caps really got a nice boost the last few months and that's evident in the chart as it really pulled away from the S&P 500.

Nasdaq: 349.18%

Russell 2000: 290.91%

S&P 500: 246.20%

Dow Jones: 216.26%
