The stock market crash of 1987: in the Wall Street Journal...



Item # 677644

October 20, 1987

WALL STREET JOURNAL, New York, Oct. 20, 1987

* Stock market crash of 1987
* Best title to be had (rare)


The front page proclaims the famous report of the stock market crash of 1987, reading: "Stocks Plunge 508.32 Amid Panicky Selling" with a subhead: "Percentage Decline Is Far Steeper Than '29; Precious Metals Gain". Also a 3 line, 1 col. head: "A Repeat of '29? Depression in '87 Is Not Expected".
Included on the ftpg. are two graphs, one showing the Dow Jones average in 15 minute intervals and the other the huge volume by the half-hour.  This crash ranks among the worst in American history, certainly alongside the famous crash of 1929 which began the Great Depression.
This is the complete issue with both sections and 72 pages. Condition is terrific.
Certainly the best title to have these notable stock market reports.
