This Month In Market History

We are here to help you look forward and build your future.  In doing so, it's also important to know how we got to where we are today. Below you will find some interesting information that has shaped the landscape of the stock market over the years.  

  1. September 3, 1929 - The Dow Jones Industrial Average reaches a peak of 381.17 as the public becomes obsessed with the stock market.  Over the next 2 months, the stock market would experience 2 of its worst days ever and the nation would be plunged into the Great Depression.  The Dow would not close above 381.17 again until November 23, 1954 - a span of 25 years.
  2. September 26, 1955 - Dow Jones Industrial Average drops 6.54%, or 31.89 points on the news of President Eisenhower's heart attack over the weekend.  At the time, it was the 2nd largest single day point drop in history.
  3. September 30, 1981 - 10 Year U.S. Treasury hits all time high yield of 15.84%.  The Federal Funds Rate sits at 17%, CPI inflation was around 11%, and surprisingly the yield curve was pretty flat with 6 month bills yielding on 0.5% less than 30 year bonds.  Money market funds yielded over 17%.

A new phase

The activation of two of our key recessionary tripwires portends a new phase for equities—and investment strategy. Investors may need to get more defensive in coming months, as the risk-reward balance for equities could become less favorable.
