New York Stock Exchange DJIA Stocks on October 29 1929

The Roaring Twenties, the decade that led up to the Crash, was a time of wealth and excess. Despite caution of the dangers of speculation, many believed that the market could sustain high price levels. Shortly before the crash, economist Irving Fisher famously proclaimed, “Stock prices have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau.”

However, the optimism and financial gains of the great bull market were shattered on “Black Thursday“, October 24, 1929, when share prices on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) collapsed with “Black Tuesday” October 29, 1929 occurring the following week, ushering in the Great Depression.

Here are the closing prices on the Dow Jones Industrial Average stocks for October 29, 1929.

    If you wanted to make a great investment back in this day, General Electric would have performed very well considering all of the stock splits it had.

    It was a bad run for the economy back then. The people were spending more than what they do to the point of no return. I just hope it won’t ever happen again.

    I wonder what had happened those days that it made this turned out pretty worst. Now, in the year 2012, still the stock exchange is fluctuating. I hope this won’t be worst than we can ever imagine.

    I wonder if the 1929 depression will happen again in the very near future. Hope not.
