S&P 500 5% declines / ticker sense

thanks to http://tickersense.typepad.com/

With today's near 1% decline, the S&P 500 is now down 5.86% form its peak on 2/20. This is the seventh time during this bull market that the S&P 500 has declined by 5% or more from a peak.
i wanted to add this question...." what if the bull market is now over?!?"
möchte die frage stellen "wie sieht es aus wenn der bullenmarkt nun zuende geht ?"
In the chart below, we plot the S&P 500 highlighting each correction in red. The lower chart shows the percentage decline in each correction on a cumulative basis (from peak to trough).

On average, declines have lasted an average of 74 calendar days. Once the market does reach its low point, it has taken an average of 64 calendar days to recoup the losses
