A bear market reading list. As you can see the S&P 500 and Dow have yet to officially enter bear market territory, but by every other measure we are in a bear market.

And if you really want to build an audience and not just produce a temporary pageview spike or a momentary surge in the ratings, you tell the truth over a long period of time and earn the loyalty of the crowd. (Reformed Broker)
