Crash Of 2008 Now Worse Than Crash Of 1929

We just hit another milestone.  The market has now fallen farther faster than it did during the Great Crash of 1929-1932.


Floyd Norris, NYT:


It has been 513 calendar days since the stock market peaked on Oct. 9, 2007. Since then, the S.&P. 500 is down 56 percent and the Dow is off 53 percent.


On Jan. 29, 1931 — the identical number of days after the 1929 market peak — the S.&P. 500 was down 49 percent and the Dow was down 56 percent. The 1929 crash got off to a much faster start, but we have now more or less caught up.


And here's a chart by Doug Short at dshort.com that illustrates the point.  In case you're obsessed, Doug updates the chart every day:
