Definition: A stock market crash is when stock indexes lose more than 10{70720668fcf7ea87ee17ca7f9b9e8475dec1ce9f19f870dc2df6b57579d64c1e} in a day or two. Don’t get me wrong – I know all of this sounds a little extreme – I thought so too when I first heard it. However after lots and lots of research, and coming to understand exactly what was going on – I woke up to reality and hit the panic button for a while.

We can get another major banking crisis if banks take losses from assets other than residential real estate (my feeling is that the market has largely accounted for losses from residential real estate.) I’m thinking assets such as commercial real estate, credit card loans, and so on. Delinquincies and losses are rising in these assets but they seem within expectations so far.stock market crashstock market crash

The extreme rise in the Dow Jones in the period 1920 – 1929 and especially between 1927 – 1929, was primarily caused because the expected value of the shares of companies that are in the acceleration phase of their existence, was increasing enormously.

The initial crash occurred on Black Thursday (October 24, 1929), but it was the catastrophic downturn of Black Monday and Tuesday (October 28 and October 29, 1929) that precipitated widespread panic and the onset of unprecedented and long-lasting consequences for the United States.

Some cause instigating the crash include: rapidly increasing short-term and long-term interest rates, increased debt of the US government, the declining value of the US dollar compared to foreign currencies, weakening US current account deficit, extremely low dividend-yields, high price to earnings ratios, and a bull market characterized by optimistic investors.stock market crash
