Market return data is based on the Dow Jones Industrial Average daily price. "Loss" is the total drop from the previous market high to its low point. "Time to recover" is from the lowest point until it regained the previous market high.

Past performance is no guarantee of future returns. The performance of an index is not an exact representation of any particular investment, as you cannot invest directly in an index.

All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest.
