With the anticipation of a possible bear market in 2015, we're looking back at the 10 worst pullbacks in bear market history.
A bear market is when a market falls 20% from its high point. At today's opening price of 17,180.88, the Dow Jones has fallen 6.4% from the high it set in May. So we still have a ways to fall before hitting a bear market - but these drops can happen quickly.
