Coronavirus Crash

December 2019 was a decade-long high-point for stock markets.

Hopefully over the next two or three years it will show when our savings recover their value.

Lowest All-share total return index was 5147 on 23rd March 2020 which is 65% of the end 2019 value.

Peak before crash: 4123 October 2007
Fell to: 2429 February 2009
Recovered to: 4154 March 2011   (two years to recover)
