Another Chart For People Who Think That History Doesn't Repeat

On Tuesday, we posted the chart of the S&P closing at exactly the same level on both October 3, 2011 and October 3, 2008, an ominous similarity since 2011 has already been compared to 2008 so much.

A reader, Joerg, sends us another “history repeats” chart showing how similarly the NASDAQ is behaving to that year.

We’re not totally sure what to make of it — or whether there is even a reflection — but still, it’s nice eye candy.
