You see a drop of 700 or 800 points these days and while the numerical value looks terrifying, percentage wise it isn't all that bad. For us to have that bad of a loss percentage wise the point drop would have to be much bigger, around 3600 and there are circuit breakers to prevent that from happening. So a meltdown like this would have to occur over at least several days to have that kind of percentage damage.

that's a drop in the bucket, the next massive crash will indeed happen on 09/29/15 as predicted by Nostradamus and the prophecy of the four blood moon / total lunar ecliplse cycles, expect a freefall drop of over 1200 points before the noon hour and it will not recover by the closing bell, this is a wake up call for all these fools who trust the market when they should be buying gold and silver, everyone knows the dow is controlled by the mafia and the actual value of most stocks is wildly inflated and how all the dirty accountants fudge the numbers on a daily basis, also expect the price of oil to jump accordingly to over 160 dollars per barrel.

And someday in the near future the Dow will fall 2,000..maybe 3,000 pts in one day. 

The joke of it is, the Market closed at 1,738 on October 19, 1987. The Dow has never been that low since that day.

The realization that you've grown up in an economy that was completely fake and rigged, and a start of a real economy where size doesn't matter anymore…

And while it is hard enough to take away something that makes a person happy it's even more difficult when it seems like it's the only thing.

Mr Kane says:

too much supply results in less demand afterall, it is human nature. Everybody is investing, nobody wants to buy, stock goes up like bubble and become fragile, then crash. Please learn from this poor fellow American kids.

Steven Isnumber says:

Although i believe it's impossible to time the market crash , even if you do believe that the market is a bubble , it's impossible to time it , i strongly believe that those people were just bearish at that point and just caught in a huge sell off and made a killing

Steven Isnumber says:

By the way , at the same day Legendary trader Paul Tudor Jones made a killing … some other traders made a killing as well 🙂 … most lost .. it's always like that , in every single crash , somebody makes a killing … therefore a lot of people lose money
