    Stocks: Dow Down 777 pts - Biggest Pt Drop Ever

    I watch the stocks closely and they just plunged 300pts in about 50 seconds. Now the Dow is down almost 700 pts today

    Swings of 200-300 aren't out of the norm with so much going on with the economy, but 700 pts is incredible.

    UPDATE - The Dow closed down 777 points.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    You're surprised by this? Does no one know anything about the history of the market in times of crisis? It takes a while to find a new footing.

    Trust me, no one's going to die.

    Wait--kinda like Chizik's team.

    re: Stocks: Dow Down 777 pts - Biggest Pt Drop Ever

    I actually expect it to be down about 1,000 pts this week, just not all in one day like that.

    And please, keep politics out of this thread and into the cave.

    600 on fears that it won't pass... So... if it does pass will it go up 1200? This is so dumb.

    re: Stocks: Dow Down 777 pts - Biggest Pt Drop Ever

    There's no other reason the DOW would drop like that if the House voted no on the bailout plan. At least the good news is that most of the representatives are actually listening to their constituents.

    How long would it take me to pack up and move to Europe? I can catch all my Cyclone info right here from there. And some countries have only 4 day work weeks.

    The dollar has had it's biggest increase today in over 10 years. May want to re-think that plan.
