just reading 'THE GREAT CRASH 1929' by John Kenneth Galbraith. thoroughly recommend this to everybody. its right up there with STOCK OPERATOR. i thought you might like this one. front page of the Wall Street Journal September the 9th 1929 a few weeks before the crash. ' price movements in the main body of stocks yesterday continued to display the characteristics of a major advance temporarily halted for a technical readjustment'. sounds very familiar to some quotes on cnbc.
