Salesmen know stories sell.
Even on number driven Wall Street.

The New York Stock Exchange,
during its 144 years plus of history,
has only been open 3 Good Friday’s.
1898, 1906 and 1907.

Why?
Legend has it that,
despite protest by Irish-Catholic traders,
the markets opened on Good Friday, 1907
and that this “caused” the Panic of 1907.

Logic, facts, prove otherwise
but the legend persists.

A good story lives forever.
