Ritchie Bros. CEO Peter Blake, who rang the bell to close trading for the day, was joined at the exchange by President Rob Mackay, COO Bob Armstrong and other senior executives.

Late November saw some big one-day swings in share prices, on a range of slightly odd pieces of news. For example, there was a marked rally following the announcement that the beleaguered Citigroup would raise new capital by selling shares to the government of Abu Dhabi.
Ups and downs
Another 0.25 percentage point interest rate cut gave markets a lift in early November, but no sooner had this been announced then bad news from the banking sector took what steam there was out of the rally.
