Anniversary of 1987 stock market crash

The market crash of 1987 was twenty-four years ago today. Remember? I was studying for my law school entrance exams, not trading. But I can recall it was big news, dominating every television broadcast.

“Older” people then could remember the Depression, but no one else had experienced a true “panic” in their lifetimes. It was also astounding to people how fast the market recovered, and how the country did not automatically go belly-up completely.

Anyone else remember the crash of ’87?
