Black Monday: Dow Jones Biggest Drop Since 2008 / Nasdaq Down 8% (Updated: DOW -1000)

Recommended Posts

Guest

At the opening bell on Wall Street the Dow Jones has plummeted over 1000 points. The Nasdaq has already dropped 8 percent.

 

At the opening bell on Wall Street the Dow Jones had plummeted as much as 1000 points in the first minutes of trade. The Nasdaq has already dropped 8 percent. The S&P 500 has sunk 4.95 percent.

The grim data was predictable, as before the opening the Nasdaq 100 Index contract dropped 5 percent reaching its daily loss limit. Companies like Apple and Netflix also suffered from a massive sell-off, sinking at least 5.7 percent amid the panic triggered by Chinese stock markets collapse.

Dow futures plummeting more than 800 points has allowed The New York Stock Exchange to apply Rule 48 for the Monday stock market open, according to Dow Jones.
