Daily Bread for 10.29.15 – 2017


Good morning, Whitewater.

Thursday in town will be cloudy and windy with a high of forty-nine. Sunrise is 5:26 and sunset 5:51 for 10h 25m 00s of daytime. The moon is a waning gibbous with 94.3% of its visible disk illuminated.

Whitewater’s city government will hold a Zoning Code Review Committee meeting at 7 PM tonight.

On this day in 1929, prices on the New York Stock Exchange collapsed. The New York Times reported the large declines the next day:

Stocks Collapse In 16,410,030-share Day, But Rally At Close Cheers Brokers; Bankers Optimistic, To Continue Aid

Leading Issues Regain From 4 to 14 Points in 15 Minutes
Large Blocks Thrown on Market at Opening Start Third Break of Week.
Bankers Believe Liquidation Now Has Run Its Course and Advise Purchases

Stock prices virtually collapsed yesterday, swept downward with gigantic losses in the most disastrous trading day in the stock market’s history. Billions of dollars in open market values were wiped out as prices crumbled under the pressure of liquidation of securities which had to be sold at any price.

There was an impressive rally just at the close, which brought many leading stocks back from 4 to 14 points from their lowest points of the day.

From every point of view, in the extent of losses sustained, in total turnover, in the number of speculators wiped out, the day was the most disastrous in Wall Street’s history. Hysteria swept the country and stocks went overboard for just what they would bring at forced sale.
