    THIS DAY IN FINANCIAL HISTORY

    Learn what happened in business in today’s past



    October 09:


    2002: Less than three years after peaking at 5048.62, the NASDAQ Composite index hits rock-bottom at 1114.11 -- a 77.9% loss. Naturally, the analysts have universally turned bearish. Now they tell us. Over the next two years, NASDAQ will nearly double.





    1998: Japan's Nikkei 225 index, formerly the measure of the mightiest stock market in the world, closes at a new low of 12,879.97, down 66.9% from its record high of 38,915.87 on December 29, 1989.

    1972: The Wall Street Journal asks investment analysts and money managers what's in store for the stock market. William A. Hayes, head of ITT's pension fund, declares that big growth stocks will keep on growing: "They lend themselves to buy and hold. Like Tiffany merchandise in the art market their prices are high but they'll be still higher next year." Abraham Bernstein of $150 million Bayrock Advisors agrees: "Investors have always paid a premium for predictable earnings growth and I see no reason why the situation should change." Robert L. Newton, who manages $880 million at the Chemical and Eberstadt mutual funds, says, "I'm optimistic we will get a good market in 1973 with considerably more breadth." Bad breadth turns out to be more like it: In 1973, the stock market ends up losing 14.7%, with another 26.5% fall in 1974.

    1953: Trading on the New York Stock Exchange comes to just 900,000 shares, the last day (so far, at least) on which total daily trading volume is less than 1 million shares.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.

ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
