S and P 500 All Time High March 23, 2000 Historical Chart and Perspective

The S and P 500 closed over 1,000 for the first time on February 2, 1998. Closing price 1001.27
The S and P 500 closed at 1527.35 on March 23, 2000. The all time closing high.
Graph starts on February 2, 1998 and ends on August 5, 2011. Does not include the August 8 close of 1119.46.

My point, the market has not really gone anywhere on a close basis since 1998. Although the ranges have been spectacular.

An all time closing high on March 23, 2000 at 1527.35. To a crash down price of closing price of 863.16 on December 23, 2008 indicates that while the market is going no where fast over the last 13 years the range is at time violent.
