A bear market: the facts

Edward Jones Financial Advisor Alison Gilman Aquino discusses the "bear market" phenomenon. A bear market is defined as a 20 percent loss in value of investments, and has recently happened to many investments due to fear dominating fundamentals and overreaction. She discusses the fact that government debt is often the overriding factor when this occurs, and has happened frequently during this recession, as we've seen several market gyrations.
