225 years ago. Wow. That does seem like a long time ago.
Just think: IF you had ancestors who bought stock that day and held onto them.
I don’t think, though I haven’t looked it up, that this was the first Stock Exchange. Something tells me that London or possibly Amsterdam predated New York. Nonetheless, 225-years is quite the anniversary. 225 years from now will be 2,242!

NYSE Further Insults Veterans & The World: Features China’s Despicable ‘Singles Day’ On Veterans Day.
by Anura Guruge
The NYSE is OPEN.
But not only that, they FEATURED China’s Alibaba, for their despicable ‘Singles Day’
that they CHOSE to be on 11/11 to make fun of the World.
This is NOT right.
I own Alibaba shares. That doesn’t mean I think that this is right.
I see all these people claiming to support our Veterans and honor the War dead.
But everybody sits around doing NOTHING.
We have to do SOMETHING.

From the U.K. “Daily Mail“.

Sachin Tendulkar & Shane Warne rang the opening bell at the NYSE this morning.
That is HOW I found out about this — not living in NYC, LA or Houston.
The T20 teams from around the World.
Some BIG names.
This is GREAT news. Cricket, given the MILLIONS of Indians, Sri Lankans and Pakistanis now living in the U.S., not even mentioning the Brits and Aussies, has a HUGE — but low still low profile — following in the U.S. You can see multiple cricket games, being played with gusto, in any of the major U.S. cities from May to October. When we went to Philadelphia in May (to pick up the Jaguar XJ8) we saw at least 4 games in progress right in the heart of the city.
So this good. I am glad. I hear that the prices are quite high, $100+ at some venues and even higher. That is a shame. It is the kids that we need at these games.
Right now I get so much cricket that I cannot keep up! A real problem. I am TRYING to watch, even in just Highlight form, Australia v. New Zealand 1st Test, Pakistan v. England 3rd Test and Sri Lanka v. West Indies WOMEN ODIs. Given that I can only justify devoting about 80 minutes a day to cricket, I just can’t keep up. I am missing much of the India v. South Africa series. Yes, this is all on the Roku via Sling.
I will try and keep you posted on this. Not sure whether they will show this on ESPN.
