long from 41.75...targeting 64.50 and then 93.50
culsu;

Do you round up/down with your caculations


So 0.382 (^2), 0.236 (^3), 0.146 (^4), 0.090 (^5) would all be valid constants for calculating the sq nines.

Thanks

Thanks stocksster - interesting read. That article links to
this study by Christopher Carolan. In that article written 10 years ago he lists the following days as the largest 1 day % declines:

1 26-Oct-87 -33.33% Hang P
2 18-Oct-87 -22.61% DJIA P
3 5-Jun-89 -21.75% Hang
4 20-Oct-87 -14.90% Nikkei P
5 28-Oct-97 -13.70% Hang P
6 28-Oct-29 -12.82% DJIA P
7 16-Oct-89 -12.81% DAX
8 29-Oct-29 -11.73% DJIA P
9 19-Oct-87 -11.12% Hang P
10 22-May-89 -10.78% Hang

Does anybody have updated largest 1 day % declines since 1998?

I was just wondering if the same skew towards October has continued for the last decade...

I used Excel's Round() function, which is half-up (<5 stays the same, >= 5 goes up).
