  • That's 18% in two days' time!
    This might affect the rest of the world in the morning...

    China is down 4% right now.

    I would have noticed this sooner, but I was busy picking out and ordering some heirloom seeds. How appropriate!

  • Now it's down 14% -- I wonder what it will look like by morning?

    We're looking at Black Tuesday here, folks.

    Not just any country, but the THIRD LARGEST ECONOMY IN THE WORLD.

    This has to cause ripples, whether we like it or not.

  • 8,247.49

    Today's change:
    -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!

  • It's lost 21.35% in the last 5 days!

    That's a lot of people losing a LOT of money.
