It was Thursday October 24, 1929 and thousands of people gather on Wall street for the opening of the stock market. This would be the first of three "black days" in October that year. That day the market took a turn for the worst and and showed signs that it would drop out. What came next was so catastrophic that it sent all of America into an economic depression. Just four days after 'Black Thursday' on 'Black Monday' the stock market began to crash. In the end dropping nearly 13% on that black day. If that wasn't bad enough the next day on 'Black Tuesday' the market completely fell out dropping an additional 12%. This event led to panic, suicide the closing of over 1,000 banks. In October, 1929 investors lost over 100 billion dollars.
