Stock Market Crash - 1974

 June 26, 2009 12:06 AM

As a continuation of the series of charts dedicated to the stock market crashes I would like to present the Dow Jones Industrials chart in period of 1973 and 1974 years. In almost 2 years the  Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) lost over 45% of its value - not the worst but still the pretty bad and prolonged recession. The crash came after the collapse of the Bretton Woods system, with the associated 'Nixon Shock' and United States dollar devaluation under the Smithsonian Agreement. The recession was compounded by the oil crisis in October 1973.

Chart 1: Dow Jones Industrial chart, 1973 - 1974, 1 bar = 3 days
