TIME Covers Wall Street

1982: Bull Market

1982: Bull Market
"For the brokers who work the floor of the Big Board, the past two weeks have been as exhausting and exhilarating as a triumphant run in a marathon race. Never have they logged so many miles rushing between the buzzing telephones along the walls of the exchange and the bustling trading posts in the middle. Never have the stock prices, which are flashed in green on the electronic tapes overhead, surged, dipped and surged again with such stupefying speed."
From: Wall Street's Super Streak, Sep. 06, 1982
