Prior to the crash people were receiving higher incomes. With more income average people invested in the stock market driving prices up. With an unbelievable amount of prosperity there looming in the background, was the thought of a stock market crash.
Then it happened.
Economist had warned of a crash, a bubble bursting, but it fell on deaf ears. So then the tragedy began, the bottom fell out and everyone scrambled to keep from losing everything.
The world was succumbing to a global economical crash and a wide spread fear of a faulty recovery.
The banks began failing one by one, occasionally four or more at a time.
And don’t get me started on the whole immigration thing.
When reading this article please keep in mind the title, the history lesson of the stock market crash.
If history has taught us nothing but one thing, in time everything repeats its cycle.
The previous stated lesson is from the crash of the 1920’s the last quarter of 1929, October 24th to be exact.
An Unethical confidence game.
Although there were rumors the bankers were secretly selling their stocks after the pooling and buying. This would still be a legal pump and dump.
In the stock market crash of 1929 the bottom was not finally felt until July 8, 1932, an approximate time period of two years, nine months, and two weeks and two days.
Even today economist are looking at the stock market crash of 1929, comparing it with our current economy. The global economy at that time was bleak, but not too long after, the healing did begin.
We started a new cycle of growth.
Our new cycle of growth is going to be small hops (as stated in a previous post) which will total one big leap when we look back a year from now.
A recovery is not an overnight fix.
At this time we should take advantage of the downturn before the upswing and invest in the one tangible asset that will appreciate in the very near future.
Commercial real estate is seeing more foreclosures and is due for even more, making the prices unbelievably low. This low will not last more than two to two and half years.
The residential housing industry is also going to experience another down turn before its appreciation upswing.
So think about where you would like to be in five years.
Would you like to be thinking about how you shoulda, woulda, coulda (sown) invested to (reap) profit, or will you be thinking about all that you are reaping because you realized it was time to invest.
