Biggest Bubbles Over the Last 400 Years

This shows the biggest bubbles over the last 400 years according to Deutsche Bank.

The 2 biggest were the Tulip Mania in 1637 and the Mississippi Company in 1729 and the 3rd biggest is still going on as I'm writing this on February 21, 2021 - Bitcoin.

A bubble that probably wasn't thought of that much was US radio stocks in 1929 since all stocks during that time period had large drops for the next 3 years so I rarely see anybody focus on a particular equity sector when referring to the Great Depression.

The NYFANG index consists of Alibaba, Amazon, Apple, Baidu, Facebook, Google, Netflix, NVIDIA, Tesla and Twitter and is an interesting inclusion in the image because it is also still going on today.
