Summary
  • Overloaded computer and communication systems on Wall Street and other stock markets crashed when unprecedented sales caused a vast backlog of transactions to be processed. Disk drives which store American Stock Exchange transaction ran out of space. Pacific Stock Exchange computers crashed after three consecutive days of excess capacity operations. Siac, information processing system for the New York and American Stock Exchanges, handled 600 million transactions even though designed capacity volume was 450 million transactions. To allow traders and others in the stock market to catch up with transactions, stock markets scheduled shorter hours for days following the market's sales plummet.
