It was 79 years ago today.
The Stock Market crash.
The end of the roaring twenties.
The market had surged for so long... and the correction was grueling.
We've had our own stock market surge.
You can't read the financial papers without seeing people compare our current situation to the crash.
How did the market celebrate the birthday of the great crash?
By rising 900 points in the second biggest single day gain ever.
Who wants cake?
