Past cycles have averaged between seven and eight years in duration.

They have largely been smooth affairs – only on rare occasions have they rapidly peaked and troughed. Also, I cannot find – on an Australia-wide basis, going all the way back through more than a hundred years of data – when a current market low fell below a previous trough.
