The story will not be about how much the market fell - it will be about how much the market recovered after hitting bottom.

"Back up 500 points" sounds better than "down 400 points".

The market dropped 1000 points in less than an hour and came back uo 700 points. The plunge protection team to the rescue. Anyone who does not think the government is not behind this scam is a kook.

Its part of Obama’s administration of “at some point you make enough money”
he has decided that Americans have made enough money and is therefore going to make sure everyone is broke in the spirit of “fairness”
of course the media will trump this all as brilliant

On things for certain, a temporary fall by 800+ pts will make retail investors think long and hard about returning to the market!

Not good for the brokerage firms who make their living on small investors.

Had the 900 point plunge happened at 3:30, there would have been no time to recover.

I don't think this will turn into a big crash. Lots of profit taking, sure. The big one will come if Republicans don't take back Congress. If they take Congress, and stabilize spending, the market can totter along between 9000 and 11,000 for a few more years, until some bills come due. If they don't act on those bills, then a systemic problem will arise, but that is years down the road.

If Dems hold Congress, then all bets are off. Time to take your chips and cash in.

I am watching Dylan Ratigan attempting to explain this crisis on MSNBC,,,and NOT ANY MENTION OF THE OBAMA ECONOMIC POLICY,,he is only blaming Greece!! Not even a comparison to what Obama is doing with our tax dollars!

Dylan Ratigan stated just moments ago that Capitalism has to go. Massive corporate corruption in Greece and USA can not be allowed to continue (paraphrased). Our masters in Washington are pleased.

yahoo news reported that the DOW was down 998.5 points, then jumped back by +500. Sounds like an auto-trigger for the FED to buy at -1000.

That's a fact. Funny when it crossed 11k I was giving some thought to moving another big chunk of my 401k from equities into stable asset. I moved a chunk in the fall of ‘08 before that big drop. Thought 11k was the magic number. Was thinking it would hang till October though. Uh, probably wrong on that thought.

“The market dropped 1000 points in less than an hour and came back uo 700 points. The plunge protection team to the rescue.”

Completely agree with you. The market ‘miraculously’ turns just 1.5 pts shy of being down 1000. This reversing action had to be the ‘invisible hand’ of the PPT. Allowing the DOW to hit the 1000 mark would have have a very damaging psychological, if not political, effect.

Not only do I believe that, but I believe it is being financed by the $700 Billion of unallocated TARP funds.

“Biggest drop in the DOW eva, Obama.”

No question about it — he and his out of control spending are largely responsible for today’s reaction.

They are playing a dangerous game. I wonder how many silver bullets the Plunge Protection Team has in a falling market like this (i.e., how many times can they attempt to reverse a free falling market if attempt #1 does not work?).
