The first quarter ends with another snapped streak for the S&P500.
Going into Q1, the S&P500 had delivered positive returns for 16 consecutive quarters or four straight years. The chart illustrates how rare the streak has been over the past half century.
There have been only five other clusters of similar streaks.
The below table shows the post 3, 6, and 12-month returns after the 4-year streak was snapped.
Mixed results with no discernible pattern, however.
