Events-in-Time includes over 80,000 events from 1 AD when Gaius Caesar made peace with the Parthians to the April 2019 tragedy of Norte Dame burning in Paris, France. How did the stock market behave after these events? Events-In-Time will show you what was happening around the world as you choose a benchmark index to overlay against these historical incidents.

What caused the South Sea Bubble of 1720 or the Panic of 1837? What was occurring prior to the infamous market crash of 1929? How did the market react to the assassination of John F. Kennedy? GFD provides you a unique set of information to correlate any market behavior to external events so you can forecast future market behavior when something similar occurs.

In addition to keyword searches, there are special sections on booms and recessions, bull and bear markets, leaders of different countries, financial crises and hundreds of other events. Each event is classified by country, topic (war, assassination, natural disaster, election, etc.) and date. Users are able to search the past and understand the global changes that drove markets over the past two millennia.

Events-in-Time will enable you to see patterns in how markets respond to external events. If you want to discover all of the financial panics that occurred in the past, type in the word “panic,” if you want to find out all the wars that happened in the past, type in “war.” These and thousands of other events can be discovered using Events-In-Time.
