The 1987 stock market crash might take place again

On the 30th anniversary of the well-known 1987 stock market dip, American equities are at a record maximum and market participants are concerned that abrupt valuations might suggest a correction is actually overdue notwithstanding upbeat corporate earnings as well as economic surge.

Some experts wonder whether that "Black Monday" could take place today or not. Up-to-date trading technology, obvious changes to the way stock exchanges function and the way investor funds are currently managed should hypothetically make a repeat of the 1987 stock disaster unreal. However, cautious market participants don’t rule out the worst scenario, and they keep staying on the safe side.

Director of the NYSE floor division at O'Neil Securities, Ken Polcari, told that investors have learned a lot from that mistake of 1987 in terms of the reaction or even over reaction.

Apparently, the safeguards in place would probably prevent another 1987-style stock crash from occurring, although the Dow reaching 23,000 points for the first time this week, not to mention the advent of high-speed automated trading, some investors aren’t so sure.
