A Tribute to President Ronald Reagan

 "We’re bullish on the American Economy," President Ronald Reagan told the NYSE community from the bell podium in 1985. His comments were met with thunderous applause.
During his 1985 visit, President Reagan addressed Wall Street and corporate leaders in the Exchange's board room. Then NYSE Chairman and CEO, John J.
