This was still very much top of mind when I joined NYSE in April 1988. We “management” types underwent regular training on the floor so we could step in and record trades and quotes in the event of such an emergency. I have to tell you, the thought of this onetime communications major having to correctly pick up the details of trades that were called out verbally and rapidly in traderspeak, and then putting those details up on the tape quickly, was a bit scary to me and probably absolutely terrifying to the traders around me during my fortunately brief training stints. Somehow the market (and I) survived.
