A moment of silence, please:
It was 34 years ago today that the market crashed, which prompted the government to “help” everyone and begin the slow, merciless strangulation of natural, organic, capitalist equity markets. People used to bitch and moan about how markets have always been manipulated, but pre-1987 traders honestly had no clue how good they had it. I would give anything to have a market like that again, instead of this clown-show we have every day. Amen.
