Going to be a wild week. Futures limit down, crude near $31, gold near $1700, and the 10 yr yield is at 0.5%! How long until the Fed steps in? Tomorrow or Tuesday is my guess. I bet some big funds and some companies are going to blow up soon. Would hate to be holding junky debt right now.

hell it was at -2819 around 8pm lol....I guess they can still trade but they are not allowed below that number.....or 5% loss.

I don’t believe that number is correct. That sounds like the S&P value at 8pm that’s about 5%

Yeah maybe it was S&P not Dow.....so the real question is this the beginning of a long term down correction and if so how much...10%, 20%?

I’ve sold most heavy stock funds. My bond funds are doing well. Will buy back in later

Already close to 20%. Limit down is 5% in the futures market. Won't trade below until the cash open. We'll see if the big guns come out and stick save before the open. If not, it will be a bloodbath.

7% drop tomorrow triggers a breaker of 15 minute halt
Then I think second breaker is 14% then third at 20% halts trading for the day.

Not telling
So when was the last time that the stock futures stopped because they reached the limit?
