A Tumultuous Time in Financial Markets The S&P 500 vs. the Shanghai Composite IndexWe initially created this chart last autumn, and thought it would be interesting to update it for a longer term perspective. A year ago at the end of August 2015, a very volatile year began for national and international financial markets. Initially triggered by a crash in the Chinese stock market, sparking serious concerns regarding the international economy, the S&P 500 fell significantly, but then recovered completely by mid-autumn. Then the oil price crisis of early 2016 brought another sudden and dramatic drop, but again, the S&P recovered completely within 2 months. When the Brexit vote came in late June, the market barely reacted (despite expectations), and soon thereafter the S&P hit a new all-time high, a little above its previous spring 2015 peak. Thousands of pundit prognostications later, many predicting crash and doom, U.S. financial markets are basically back to where they were when the Chinese stock market crisis began one year ago.
