Alejandro Vaca's insight:

It began with black Thursday when a record number of 12.9 million stocks were exchanged adding that the system for tracking prices  couldn't keep up with this volume of trades. Ticker tapes were nearly 90 min. behind & at the end of the day the market had fell around 9%.

Alejandro Vaca's insight:

Here are news paper articles & cartoons depicting the stock market. A man had gone missing after Black Thursday, one dropped dead, and another shot himself. A new bleak reality had arrived, a "depression" & the economy was not going to bounce back anytime soon.
