This
is the grand daddy of them all. Investors lost 86% of their money over
this 813 day beast. This market crash combined with the 1929 crash,
makes up the Great Depression.

If
you had $1000 on 9/3/1929 (beginning of the 4th worst crash, it would
have gone down to a whopping $108.14 by July 8th, 1932 (end of the worst
crash) or an 89.2% loss. To recover from a loss like that, you would
have to watch your portfolio go up 825%! The full recovery didn't take
place until 1954, 22 years later!

Date Started: 4/17/1930
Date Ended: 7/8/1932

Total Days: 813
Starting DJIA: 294.07
Ending DJIA: 41.22
Total Loss: -86.0%

This is what the CSE participants need to understand. Some counters have in fact dropped by 86% at the CSE. I think WAPO has dropped by about 95% and SING is not far off. When ever someone asks the question "I am stuck what shall I do?" The answers have always been hold or average down.

Right from the day after the market top, everyone has been encouraging others to buy and hold. And people who took that advice are now on the verge of tears.
