Worst Market Crash

Did you know?  The worst market crash in the United States lasted two years (1930-1932) and helped spawn the Great Depression. A thousand dollars invested in September 1929 was worth just $108.14 in July 1932.  In the three years following the stock market crash, the S&P 500 fell 86%.  It wouldn't recover to its previous peak for another 32 years.
