Janet Yellen's last press conference as Federal Reserve chair this week marks the end of a brief (4 year), but important tenure.
Under Yellen, who has overseen 31 FOMC meetings before this week's, the S&P has averaged a change of 0.21 percent on Fed days.
To be fair, Bernanke was chairman through the single greatest financial crisis since the Depression, which was marked by some of Wall Street's most volatile trading.
In the end, however, the journey of the markets under Bernanke and Yellen has proved remarkably similar.
