Stock Market Crash: Looking Back to 1987

This week's In the News looks back at the 1987 stock market crash. The six resources provide an overview of the stock market crash then and lessons learned from that experience. The Dow Jones industrial average fell by 554 points on October 27, 1997, the largest points decrease ever, sparking fears of a repeat of the 1987 stock market crash which happened almost to the day ten years ago. Confidence returned to the stock market the next day and the Dow Jones increased by 337 points, the largest points gain ever. In the 1987 crash ten years earlier, the Dow Jones industrial declined by 508 points (at that time the largest points decrease) on October 19, 1987 but rallied to increase by 102 points (at that time the largest one-day increase) the next day.
