|Following the financial crisis trough of March 9, 2009, the stock market embarked on a relatively sharp rally. Today's chart focuses on one particular stock market index -- the S&P 400 (mid-cap stocks). The reason for the focus is that the S&P 400 achieved a significant milestone earlier this week when it made a new, all-time record high. Considering the magnitude of the financial crisis and resulting bear market, this is indeed a significant achievement.Notes:
