The Securities Act (May 1933) and the Securities and Exchange Act (June 1934) provided investors with more accurate information so that they could feel more confident when purchasing stock. That’s easy – because a stock market crash isn’t obvious and anybody claiming they know so with near certainty is being untruthful.
Subjective crash probabilities tended to rise following an increase in the number of recent news-media uses of the word crash” or other words indicating severe market losses.

The PBOC could announce a major yuan devaluation if Janet hikes rates in September, and that could potentially unleash the type of stock market crash that occurred in 1929.

The economy had been showing signs of weakness for months before the stock market crash, and with or without it, a downturn in the normal business cycle was taking place. No one knows what triggered the sudden loss of confidence which first surfaced near the end of trading on the 23rd of October, 1929.
