The 1929 Stock Market crash was a result of various economic imbalances and structural failings. These are some of the most significant economic factors behind the stock market crash of 1929. A lot of the Stock Market crash can be blamed on over exuberance and false expectations. In the 1920s, there was a rapid growth in bank credit and loans. Prices were not being driven by economic fundamentals but the optimism/exuberance of investors. This caused some of the disappointing profit results, which precipitated falls in share prices.

The universal use of credit stimulated rising stock prices. Stock exchange loans or, in alternative wording, margin trading in securities, became widely spread. It meant that the buyer of securities could pay the entire price at once or get a loan from their broker to pay for these. In turn, the brokerage house credited only part of the securities price and the part covered the buyers themselves was called ‘the margin’. It should be noted that at those times brokerage houses received stock prices while crowds of their clients made transactions by cable. Brokers’ information was delivered to sea-going vessels by radio. I believe this was a terrible time, children holding signs for there parents to get work.

Stock markets crashed in 1929. There are pivotal which only means (of crucial importance in relation to the development or success of something else) moments in history. Volcanoes explode, droughts end, dictators die, enemies invade, revolutions succeed, economies collapse. For the United States, despite its recurring financial panics, "economic collapse" did not join its list of pivotal moments until the stock market crash of 1929.The dynamics of the stock market is determined by the "Volume" of Buy and Sell for the trading cycle in a day. Although if the markets crashed there were no sell trading, nor buying goods.
