The legendary Jack Bogle, founder of Vanguard Investments, gave an interview to CNBC last week in which he said, "I have never seen a market this volatile to this extent in my career… I've seen two 50-percent declines, I've seen a 25-percent decline in one day, and I've never seen anything like this before."
The "father" of passive index investing is, of course, talking about the powerful whipsawing on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the much broader S&P 500; sharp, triple-digit declines followed by sharp, triple-digit rallies what seems like every other day or so.
