Really Bad Months

Last month saw most asset classes decline, with the exception of US equities.  I thought I would put the declines in perspective – the below is since 1972 for the following main asset classes.

Most equity like assets have had worst months of over -20%.  Bonds, 7-15%.  Can you fathom that?
