    Kenny Polcari - A Brief History of the NYSE Pt II 1987 – 2000

    Kenny Polcari - A Brief History of the NYSE Pt II 1987 – 2000

    And so the story continues with the Black Monday Crash of 1987 through to the tech boom, Y2K bug and the year 2000. By the way you can catch Kenny on ausbiz tv where he appears regularly.
    "These big Americana blue chip names got absolutely hammered. And so thus the Dow fell, you know, 22 and a half percent, the S&P that fell. It was horrendous. I'll never forget it. Again as I tell the story, I can feel myself in the room. I can feel the phones ringing. I can feel the tension in the, in the place. It was really, it was unbelievable. It was unbelievable. And we were there that night until, you know, eight or nine o'clock at night, just writing reports and confirming trades because there was such swings in prices.”

    Kenny Polcari - A Brief History of the NYSE Pt I 1980 - 1987

    Kenny Polcari - A Brief History of the NYSE Pt I 1980 - 1987

    So, I’m searching around for my next guest and I come across this guy, Kenny Polcari. I’m looking at this guy and I’m thinking – he’s been on the New York Stock Exchange for like 40 years. He might know a thing or two. I normally try and keep interviews to 30 minutes but after 30 minutes we hadn’t even reached 1987. I love war stories and Kenny’s been there on the frontline on a bayonet charge through the markets. We’ve decided to record 4 episodes to chronicle this extraordinary story. Next episode will be about the Black Monday Crash of 1987 through to the tech boom, Y2K bug and the year 2000. After that episode we'll take a little break and then come back with 2 more. By the way the movie our failing memories was trying to recall was Wall Street with Kirk Douglas and Charlie Sheen. “Greed is Good”. Here’s some clips: https://youtu.be/-TLCaDbBv_s


    "I was completely enamoured by what I experienced at the New York Stock Exchange. You have to remember in 1980 there were no computers, nothing, zero. There wasn't even a calculator. There was no television, no radio. There certainly wasn't any internet Yahoo and LinkedIn and Twitter, none of that stuff existed. And when you were on the floor, you were really in a cocoon. You couldn't get information about what was happening in the outside world, because there were no outside sources. I walked into a building that had 5,000 Type A personalities running around screaming and yelling, buying, selling, bidding, offering all of these stocks. I was completely mesmerized from the minute I walked through that door." - Kenny Polcari

    Nathan Halliday - Zipmex

    Nathan Halliday is the Country Manager of Zipmex a crypto exchange that is servicing the needs of people who want to learn more and to buy cryptocurrencies. I’ve been avoiding talking about crypto currencies for most of this podcast series. It’s difficult for me to find a way of explaining them without going down the rabbit holes of block chain and distributed ledgers, but today we have a go with Nathan.

    Episode blog post: https://www.sharesforbeginners.com/blog/zipmex
    “That's a big part of my mission is to help people understand what they're actually investing in. Certainly as a stock trader you have to research and understand what you're putting your money in even if it's not a huge amount you want to understand what it is and from that you form an opinion as to why you think it's a good investment. And we encourage the same sort of thing in this space so a big part of what we're looking to do is help people understand what all the different coins are. Most people just think of Bitcoin and when you speak of Bitcoin, they're actually referring to the entire cryptocurrency market.”
