1914 - New York Stock
Exchange (NYSE) reopens for bond trading after nearly four
months, longest stoppage in exchange‚€™s history; outbreak of
World War I in Europe forced the NYSE to shut its doors on July
31, 1914, after large numbers of foreign investors began selling
their holdings in hopes of raising money for the war effort;
world's financial markets closed by August 1. Trading of stocks
didn‚€™t resume until December 12, 1914, when the Dow Jones
Industrial Average (DJIA)--the most important of various stock
indices used to gauge market performance--suffered its worst
percentage drop (24.39 percent) since it was first published in
1896. This precipitous fall underlined the risky nature of
business during the first months of the war, when nobody knew
exactly how long the conflict would last or exactly what role
the then-neutral U.S. would eventually end up playing.
