I had no idea u could trade stocks online in 1986!!
This stuff is amazing. the 1986, 1988 and 1995 episodes of Investing Online of the Computer Chronicles really opened my eyes. Being able to trade stocks online via dialup in 1986 is crazy. I had no idea a 286 computer could do that. But have been a good minute delay back then from when the order went to it's destination from the home computer, to when it gets filled on the stock market. Probably was all manual on the market end still.
Nowdays we can trade on our phones. It's nuts.
I LOVE this show. Almost more than the Star Trek Series (Seri?)
