The Stock Market Crash of 1987 (Black Monday) Explained in One Minute

Black Monday on October 19, 1987 is the name commonly attached to a sudden, severe, and largely unexpected stock market crash that struck the global financial market system. In the United States, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) fell exactly 508 points (22.6%), accompanied by crashes in the futures and options markets. This was the largest one-day percentage drop in history. Significant selling created steep price declines throughout the day, particularly during the last hour and a half of trading. The S&P 500 and Wilshire 5000 indices each declined more than 18 percent, and the S&P 500 futures contract declined 29 percent. Total trading volume was so large that the computer and communications systems in place at the time were overwhelmed, leaving orders unfilled for an hour or more. Large funds transfers were delayed for hours and the Fedwire and NYSE DOT systems shut down for extended periods of time, further compounding traders' confusion.
