Today is Monday October 11.
On this day, just three years ago, in 2007 the Dow Jones enjoyed a record high of the Dow Jones Industrial Average occurred at 14,198.10 points. Strangely enough the largest intra-day point swing since 1987 took place almost exactly a year later on the 10 of October 2008, that day the market reached a low of 7,882.51 points.
