How Crises Impact Markets

Saturday, July 09, 2005 | 07:38 AM

Our friends at Stock Trader’s Almanac sent along this table, noting how past terror events have generated different market reactions.

STA: "When the market was in decline or weak, the terror attack merely seemed to accelerate the process. But with the Bali bombing, after the 2002 bottom, the market shrugged off the horrific event and never lost ground."
