May 17, 1792

The New York Stock Exchange was created.

On this day in 1792, twenty-four brokers sat down to fix rates for commissions on stocks and bonds. From that agreement came what has been known since as the New York Stock Exchange or Wall Street.

And the beat goes on ... with inside traders now paying their dues and the bubble bursting for many.

Stock market bubbles don't grow out of thin air.

They have a solid basis in reality,

but reality as distorted by a misconception

leaving you depressed to start anew.
