The paper explores the reasons why crashes occur within the market, which include fear, greed, a lack of communication and inefficient technology. The paper takes a look at what led up to the stock market crashes in 1929 and 1987. The paper points out that despite all the efforts to keep the market a safe place, the reality is that it will never be. The paper posits that investors just have to make the right moves and be smart in the playing field, while making the soundest decisions possible to protect their assets.

From the Paper:

"The market is constantly changing. There are occasions when it benefits the investors and other occasions when it can become extremely detrimental. Investors try to take whatever measures possible to ensure that they get the most profit out of their investments. They try to play it smart and safe. Unfortunately, because the market isn't always predictable, investors will take drastic measures to get out of it what they feel they should. Fraud becomes rampant, thus the estimates of damages based on stock price movements overstate actual damages."
