Like the May 6 event, there were no major news events that could have stimulated the crash, and it seemed to come from nowhere. Like the May 6 event, it is suspected that technological glitches impaired the normal flow of market trading, making it seem as though a major sell-off was occurring.
Like the May 6 event, Mercury was retrograde.
I’m just saying. (Here’s a good article about the 1987 crash.)
