We're interested in people's experiences and recollections of Black Monday - The Crash of '87.
Here's a repost of something I just posted in the Hall of Fame thread to get things started.
http://online.wsj.com/public/resour...project=CRASH87 Click on the first upper left dot and then click next or previous to go through the sequence. Wasn't involved in the markets then. Along with a lot of other people a former girlfriend of mine lost several hundred thousand dollars and was wiped out. Fortunately for her, her mother is a multimillionaire, close friend of Henry Paulson's, so she was okay. My Dad was a multithousandaire so good thing I wasn't involved.
