1928-1954 Stock Chart Pre Thru Post Great Depression Era

The 1928-1954 stock chart on the page below, is a continuation of a series of pages with various charts from the Great Depression era of the early 1900's, this time extending to when the peak level prior to the start of the decline was reached once again.

The previous charts that go along with this series can be found here: 1929-1930 Stock Charts and 1929-1932 Stock Chart. If you haven't looked at these prior charts, you may want to before reading below to put everything into better perspective. The introductory page to this series can be found here: Great Depression Stock Chart Series.

The prior charts showed the devastating decline in price levels that occurred. The chart below shows how long it took before prices finally reached the prior peak level which was achieved in September of 1929:

You can see by looking at this 1928-1954 stock chart, that once the bottom was finally in place in late 1932, the market gradually rose over the next two decades. Notice that it took just about 25 years from the peak in the stock market in 1929 for it to reach this level again.

Although the market rebounded nicely from 1932-1940, it did so with large up and down movements. It wasn't until a few years into World War II and the post war period that the economy got a boost from the rebuilding efforts and economic expansion that started to occur.

You may notice that I have added an "A" and a "B" to the chart above. I added these as to show possible similarities to todays market position. If the stock market bottom in March 2009 was indeed a long term bottom, then position "B" may be a similar positioning in comparison.

On the other hand, if the stock market bottom in March 2009 was only a short term bottom in the middle of a longer term trend, position "A" may be more appropriate.
