It looks like, historically speaking, once the NASDAQ declined 20%, it continued for at least another 8%, except on two of the 13 occasions. Also, the median decline was 36%.

Before drawing any more conclusions, it might be nice to see a list of the NASDAQ declines that didn't quite reach 20%--similar to the current decline (say, how often has the NASDAQ declined less than 20% but more than 15%?). Then it would be easier to judge how often a large decline (15%+) turns into a bear market decline (20%).

Great point Scott, I almost missed the conditioning of these stats on the NASDAQ taking at least a 20% decline
