Wall Street Journal on Monday’s Market Rise

The Wall Street Journal has some interesting facts concerning Monday’s 11% gain in the market. The article, Dow Takes Giant Leap as Bailouts Snap Gloom, explains that this was the fifth biggest percent gain in the history of the Dow.  The other dates on the list are even more interesting.  The top 10 dates except one in 1987 and this one in 2008 all occurred during the Great Depression between 1929 and 1933.  The third highest occurred October 30, 1929 which is just six days after the crash of October 24, 1929 that is usually credited as the start of the Great Depression.
