Stock markets around the world crashed Thursday as investors sold shares in a panic. The trigger for the panic [started with Greek debts concerns] was concern over Greek debt, but it spread like a wildfire as a trader accidentally placed an order to sell one billion shares

it'sis it "crashed Thursday" not "crashed on Thursday"? This is a frequent construction found in newspapers and magazines where space is at a premium so any extraneous words are left out. We do say things like "I'll call you Monday" instead of "I'll call you on Monday" so it's quite common.
2) Can I say the trigger of anger, the trigger of violent..etc to mean the thing that makes it start? The trigger is the thing that makes something start, but it's always "the trigger for", not of. (Well, you would say "trigger of a gun" obviously, but always "the trigger for + an event.)
We generally buy and sell shares in a company, not of.
