Transcript: Stock Market Presentation By: Bradley Hobbs The Stock Market Stock Market The stock market refers to the collection of markets and exchanges where the regular activities of buying, selling and issuance of shares of publicly held companies take place. Such financial activities are conducted through institutionalized formal exchanges or over-the-counter (OTC) marketplaces which operate under the defined set of regulations. Stock Market Creation The Creation of the Stock Market The NYSE was founded 17 May 1792 when 24 stockbrokers signed the Buttonwood Agreement on Wall Street in New York City. Famously, they met beneath a Buttonwood tree and formed a centralized exchanged for the burgeoning securities market in the United States. In 1817, the constitution of the New York Stock and Exchange Board is adopted, it had also been established by the New York brokers as a formal organization. Stock Market Crash of 1929 The Stock Market Crash of 1929 The stock market crash of 1929 was a four-day collapse of stock prices that began on October 24, 1929. It was the worst decline in U.S. history. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 25% . It lost $30 billion in market value, which equates to about $396 Billion in today's money. It was more than the total cost of World War I. It destroyed confidence in Wall Street markets and led to the Great Depression. Stock Market Crash of 1987 Monday, October 19, 1987, also known as Black Monday. In the United States, sell orders piled upon sell orders as the Dow shed value of nearly 22%. There had been talk of the U.S. entering a bear cycle – the bulls had been running since 1982 – but the markets gave very little warning to the then-new Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. Greenspan hurried to slash interest rates and called upon banks to flood the system with liquidity. He had expected a drop in the value of the dollar due to an international tiff with the other G7 nations over the dollar's value, but the seemingly worldwide financial meltdown came as an unpleasant surprise that Monday. Stock Market Crash of 1987(Black Monday) New Electronic Safeguards Back in the ‘80s, there was no way to “pull the plug” on a market that was spiraling downward. The crisis illustrated the need for a “circuit breaker” mechanism that could suspend trading on an exchange that was panicking. Fortunately, after the crash, regulators created those circuit breakers. They have been used only once during a moderate Dow slide in 1997. But they serve as a deterrent against the kind of risky bets that caused the Black Monday crash. New Electronic Safeguards
