(Parallels between the stock market now and pre 1929 crash)

This disturbed me, for it is the same old banter, albeit perhaps by accident in this case, that Peter Schiff dealt with leading up to before this finical crisis started. Now we see an article in the Wall Street Journal online edition, titled:

"1931 and 2008: Will Market History Repeat Itself?"
Written on November 22, 2008 in a section called, get this, "The Intelligent Investor."

I am sure the writers idea was nice enough and he is clearly trying to put this all in a positive perspective. Yet, the comparison of 2008 (2007/2008) to 1932 is likely way off.

When you read it, you'll notice comparisons like this, and then you'll perhaps see what I mean why comparing 2008 (even perhaps 07/08) to 1929 is way more accurate and important at this stage:

"The U.S. economy, as measured by gross national product, shriveled by 14.7% in 1931. Although no one expects the economy to grow in the fourth quarter of this year, it is flat year to date and shrank by "only" 0.3% in the third quarter. In 1931, one out of every six Americans was unemployed; today, one in 16 is out of work.

I don't foresee another Great Depression, but I am under no illusion that it can't happen. My parents and grandparents lived through it, and their memories of it have been branded on my brain."

Now, they should be lining up their ducks in a proper row... 2007 is 1929, the start of the crash, as this chart shows here below.

And another chart:

NOTE: This chart is only till OCT 2008- thus, draw another big straight wiggle down to the 50% level for around today...

And here is another chart comparing the various historical crashes to today's (also from Oct, the 30th in this case, so make the cliff drop lower again...)

Interesting study no the S&P 500 price/earnings ratios.
It just had to come down...
Look at the spike into the 2000's- incredible...

Hopefully main stream media will not lead the sheep into the slaughter house, for this is only the first waves down. We will make new lows most likely this year still, bounce a bit around when Obama takes office and then see new, very low stocks and likely not long after that again- meaning that by 2010 we will then be in a situation, at least when looking at the percentage drop in the markets, that will perhaps be just as low as the Great Depression.

Will that mean a depression with food lines and the likes? Figure it out. Do some investigations- be alert, aware and prepared. During the last depression, 90% of the folk lived on the land and 10% in the cities. Today, it is more like 90% in or near cities and only 10% can actually farm to some degree.

As I write this, I see on CNN.com that Obama is set to announce what amounts to a modern day new deal. He wants to employ some 2.5 million Americans on public work projects (re-building roads, schools, bridges, etc) to help get us back to work. These sort of moves are historical and only happen every so often- the last time; to get us out of a depression.

Peace, patience and practice makes perfect.


The best way to describe this bear market is that it started in 2007. Here is a great chart, that they seem to keep up-to-date, comparing the four great bears- notice how we are right on par now with the crash of 29':

Chart from StockTock's Social community, comparing 1937/1938 to 2008/2009 ytd:

As the author of this chart, rob46 points out:
"The pattern from 1937 through 1938 looks very similar to the current daily chart of the Dow as pointed out by MKTMike."
(BTW- we are, as of today, about by the blue line on the "E" wave heading down. What this shows is how STRANGE it is that the same sort of pattern and wave formations are forming.
(See article here on Elliot Wave and formations historically.)
