During the 1920's one special kind of loan was very popular among the Wall St. traders. It was called the Margin Loan. Here, you could pay 10% of the original price of a stock and "buy" it, wherein the rest (90%) will be lent to you through the broker. In other words, you could own $500 of stocks with only $50 down. But one condition: the loan could be called back anytime, and you HAD to pay it back in 24 hours. This was called a Margin Call. So in late October, 1929, J.D. Rockefeller exited his wealth from the Market quietly and within 24 hours, traders began calling off the margin loans in a massive wave. The result: Wall St. bled, and the worst Depression in US History till this point, started.
