A market miracle

Special Olympics North Dakota received a generous donation through Fargo's Northern Capital Trust thanks to Miracle Day, an annual charitable fund drive on Wall Street.

On the first Wednesday of each December, institutional investors from across the country direct their trades through CIBC World Markets. The firm, which normally handles about 1.5 percent of the transaction traffic each day on Wall Street, on Dec. 5 captured 12 percent of the business.

Clients trading with CIBC that day specify which registered charity they want their trading fee to go to. Northern Capital Trust bought and sold nearly 150,000 shares of stock that day, generating $5,000 for the Special Olympics.
