    Im taking the data from macrotrends showing the performance of S&P 500 over 90 years. There is a caveat, it is inflation adjusted so the index for past years like 2000 all the way back to 1930 is readjusted to reflect todays prices

    You might want to look at the charts again. The s&p is now back at where it was near the start of 2017.

    Your way off!, the s+p wasn't even @ 1600 in the year 2000.

    yes, but its the inflation adjusted charts im talking about as I explained in above post. It re adjusts year 2000 level to reflect todays prices and 18 years of inflation.

    "The charts require little explanation. So far the 21st Century has not been especially kind to equity investors. Yes, markets do bounce back, but often in time frames that defy optimistic expectations."

    There is still a positive return but only when you include dividends and reinvesting them. This is from April 2018 levels so also does not include the big sell off over the last few months.
