Forbes: 10 Memorable Events That Closed the NYSE

Hurricane Gloria (Sept. 27, 1985)

The New York-based stock exchange never opened this day, as Hurricane Gloria advanced up the East Coast. (It was the last time that weather closed the NYSE for a full day before Hurricane Sandy nearly three decades later.) Bond and commodity markets ended early.
