-1,373.00 / -14.27%
The Nikkei has lately been about the same as the DOW, as far as numbers. You may know that some indexes hover around 2,000, others around 6,000 and others around 40,000
But the Nikkei has been pretty much 1:1 with the DOW for a while now.
So imagine how Americans would react if the DOW lost 1,373 points tomorrow. It would be panic in the streets!
