    As bad as the stock market crashed today (Sept 15, 2008) it was only a 4.4% drop. Not even in the top 20.

  2. GP Says:

    Today might get close to the #10…

  3. Climateer Says:

    The 1914 decline was the result of failure to take account of substitutions to the index during the trading halt. The actual DJIA was up a fraction on the first day of trading after the halt.
    The ’87 decline is top o’the heap although the Oct. 28-29 1929 cumulative beats it by a percentage point or so.
