I'm pretty good at math.
I will admit, my partner is doing most of the work. He's very gung ho. I even have to tell him to stop talking sometimes because he never shuts it off.

Anyway, since you're EE and had Differential Equations can you please tell us what are the conditions for an Exact Differential? How about some Laplace? if f(t) =cos kt what is F(s)? Maybe just give us F(s) for f(t) = 1
can you do an integral? you know like integral of tan u du?
Don't tell me you forgot those too?
Surely A Large Human
All of the numbers you're looking for are a Google search away, but it assumes you know what factors into a stock's price.
For example, if you looked at the DJIA over the same period of time (I have the ticker as INDU), as annual or monthly data points, represented as percentage changes from the prior period, you can see when the big jumps happened.
The one you pointed out during Clinton was the "dot com" bubble, where Greenspan's infamous 'irrational exuberance' caused people to sink money into ANY internet-based startup they could find hoping to get rich. Barely 1% of them survived. Dot com companies were great at burning through huge piles of cash, but not so good at making money. (People actually thought the internet would obsolete stores).
Historically, you'll see that the advent of computerized trading and individual trading have caused the market to sway far more often, and more dramatically, because there's far less discipline amongst guys who day trade as a substitute for poker than there is amongst professional traders.
The advent of the information age has not been all bad though; there's far more information available for people to quickly, accurately made decisions about investing than ever before.
You might pick a date - say 1970 - and figure out what the stock price was that day. Multiply it by the annual inflation figures going back that far (easy to find via Google), in compounding fashion, and see where you end up. It's like retirement savings - when you get real close to retirement, it's growing by leaps and bounds. Same thing is true, to an extent, with the DJIA. When it deviates wildly from that trend, it's either overvalued or undervalued. Some will argue we're still overvalued; I'm not so sure.

What that chart represents is the metered essence of business over the past 40 years. It marks the recessions, the inflation cycles, the wars, changes in economic policy, paradigm shifts in economic practice and a good mix of regulation/deregulation activity thrown in to add to the tableau.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
