29 October 1929, 'Black Tuesday', was a bad day for stock markets. The Great Depression of the 1930s began.

It took twenty-five years for the Dow Jones to recover to pre-1929 levels.

On 19 October 1987 world stock markets had their biggest one-day crash in history.

Within two years the Dow Jones had recovered.
