As February 2020 drew to a close, markets experienced the most rapid decline of greater than 10% from all-time highs since the Great Recession of 2008-2009. The S&P 500 Index closed at 3,386.15 on February 19th, a new all-time high. By February 28th, it had fallen -12.8% in just seven trading sessions – all of which saw the index dropping further and further.
