    I put up a thread about this on r/StockMarket earlier this morning. Figured I'd do the same here on the forums as well.

    Perhaps the most intense 15 minutes of market action I have personally ever witnessed.

    Ben Lichtenstein (the guy who was calling the shots in the clip above) no longer squawks from the trading pits in Chicago anymore.

    But his call on May 6th, 2010 was absolutely the most riveting 15 minute market play-by-play of the /ES (S&P futures) I’ve ever heard.

    I still get goosebumps to this day listening to this clip.

    Happy Anniversary everyone. :p
