Submission + - Black Monday: Twenty Years Ago Today (wikipedia.org)

The Living Fractal writes: "On October 19th, 1987, the world stock markets endured a drop so large that it would eventually be known as Black Monday. Today is not Monday, though there is certainly a similarity between what happened today in the US stock markets and what happened on the Friday before Black Monday back in 1987. Can we expect that the same thing that happened twenty years ago happens again at the open of the markets on Monday? What are the causes of this potential recession, and what, if any, is the light at the end of the tunnel?"
