Wall Street rallies

November 19, 1991

Fears of a reprise of 1987's stock market crash vanished yesterday as buyers cautiously returned to the market after Friday's 120-point plunge, the steepest one-day drop in two years.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 29.52 points, or 1 percent, at 2,972.72, on heavy volume on the New York Stock Exchange. The rally was almost entirely confined to blue chips, however, as declining issues outpaced advancing ones by a 4-3 ratio overall.
