Really, dose anybody think this was an accident no way, the big boys are making fools of all the player's once again. A few billion here or there. It is so sad to see folk's retirement and life saving's puttered around with in such a matter. I hope if your in the market's ya at least still got ya short's left. No sir it's not right, but life was never fair nor will it be so.

I happened to be home and had turned on FBN when it crashed. It was a little surreal watching the numbers get larger and larger by the minute. I think it took about 3-4 minutes to go from -140 to -998

It crossed my mind for a minute that this was the beginning of a major crash and to run into town and pull a bunch of cash from the bank before it was widely known what was happening. Then it stopped and started climbing again.

ABC reported that it was an accident. :scratch
Someone keyed in some extra zeros on a transaction that triggered a panic.
We'll see.

It's pretty pathetic that our economy is based on supposition and emotion, you can see just how fast the shtf can happen! One day everyone is happy-happy-joy-joy and the next the economy is failed, no banks have money, credit is history and it's ON. I ask folks sometime what would you do if... and I hear a lot of ,that'll never happen, the gov won't let that happen. I just say okayyyy and walk away shakin my head. One minute good next minute BAD. Just glad it came on back up this time!
