On Friday, September 10, 2021, the New York Stock Exchange observed a one-minute moment of silence to recognize the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and honor the victims, survivors, and their families. 

On the day of the attack-- September 11, 2001--both NYSE & NASDAQ shut down. The stock exchange remained closed until September 17. 

TheStreet's founder Jim Cramer remembered the 9/11 attacks on his Real Money Column on Friday.

"...I have a suggestion to the leaders of a country so sadly divided. We, my generation, all knew that December 7, 1941, was a day that will live in infamy. September 11, 2001, must also be remembered as infamous even if the war still plays out with no victory 20 years later. There's a way to do it," Cramer writes. "We have a museum dedicated to that day, right at Ground Zero, one so powerful and so poignant and so true that those who don't know better can see what life was like the minute before the mass murders and then after, with horrific details including a jumper room -- yes, a jumper room. I say whatever it takes to force the remembrance that I fear otherwise will be forgotten."

Following the NYSE's reopening after the 9/11 attacks, about $1.47 trillion in value was wiped out from the market in the first week of trading.

About 3,000 people were killed by the 9/11 attacks.
