The Dow jones industrial average high this year was 18,351 and the low was 15,370 before the bounce.
Works out to about a 16% percent drop.
Compared with the flash crash of 22.61% in 1987 this is a mild correction so far.



There are mechanisms in place the prevent the market from experiencing a standard crash, though. The definitions need to change. As is so often the case, though, we're altering definitions where the feds are involved to ensure that everyone believes its sunshine and farts. Trading was halted 1200 times yesterday to prevent a crash... that's not a correction, it's a manipulated, artificial market control to ensure that there never is a quick crash again. Corrections don't involve 1086 point intraday swings...

This is a slow motion barrel roll down the straightaway and it isn't going to stop until it hits the wall.

LMAO! Remember the Iraqi Propaganda Minister Mohammed Saeed? He'd make a wonderful Wall Street apologist. The news could interview him standing in front of the trading floor with traders physically lynching themselves and setting fire to their portfolios and manage to stay calm and level voiced while saying "The economy's fundamentals are strong! This is just a correction and the strength of the American economy will shine through!"

I believe Ron Paul predicted this would happen.


Everybody knows these things are going to happen. Market corrections are a natural part of the market cycle. If they hit at the wrong time they can be troublesome but, when they hit at times like now when economy is in good shape they mean little.


What indicates that this is a good economy?

LOL, I still think they should have made him a comedian!

Anyway, to put it in perspective, in the last six trading days, the Dow has lost a total of nearly 1,900 points, or 11%

China down 1.3%. The Dow is trading up right now at 208 but I have a feeling it's going to be another rough day and we'll end up closing in the red again.

1.3% isn't that bad considering how high up they where be for the drop. We still have lots of space to fall further. We're not even near the old 2011 market numbers yet, and that's still far from zero.

It's still interesting to see all the world markets drop together. I think only Japan had an up day and that's just due to market balance, not something causing an up turn in their market so I don't see their climb holding for more then a day or two.

The economy is not In good shape, it never recuperated from the 2008 crash, we are no doing any better than before even when the markets shows that the elite are doing peachy, down the line the regular worker is still suffering for the 2008 mistakes.

You noticed that didn't you, that panic button is working like a charm, I still go with the analysis of one of the older markets watcher that said two days ago that the markets fluctuations are to much to be just a correction.

But time will tell, the band aids are not sticking enough let see how long they hold.

Been Japan the originators of the famous Quantitative Easing or what we call in the US the QEs I expect no less coming from their markets.

They sure know how to manipulate the system in their favor to stop any signs of panic.



Bank of Japan Faces Pressure as Markets Sink

Growing expectations of additional monetary easing as markets frustrate efforts to generate inflation


TOKYO—Global markets are frustrating the Bank of Japan ’s efforts to generate higher inflation, heightening expectations that the central bank will undertake additional monetary easing.

Concerns about a worse-than-expected slowdown in China have sunk stock and commodity markets, leading the yen to strengthen as investors seek safety and raising doubts about whether the U.S. Federal Reserve will begin raising interest rates next month. Oil prices are at six-year lows, having already caused the BOJ to push back its target date for achieving its 2% inflation goal.

It all adds pressure on a central bank that faces a flagging domestic recovery and inflation that is stuck near zero. Japan’s benchmark stock index—which Tokyo sees as a barometer of policy success—has lost 14% of its value over the past week. The BOJ’s favored measure of inflation, due to be released Friday, is widely expected to have turned negative last month.

US Dollar Devaluation Prediction for 2015

The US problems are far more than just a Market flop.


A debt crisis has taken the western world by storm, but few seem to be sounding the alarm. The U.S dollar, the go-to currency for global economic stability and growth, is imploding at an unprecedented rate.

Profit Confidential editors have been critics of the U.S.’s inability to reign-in government spending. Based on the White House’s own figures, the national debt will reach $20.0 trillion by the end of this decade—about 140% of our current gross domestic product (GDP).

Historically, countries that have incurred considerable debt and consistent national debt-to-GDP multiples of 120% or more have experienced currency devaluation. The U.S. dollar has been in a free-fall against other major world currencies since 2009.

You have to print money to make money. No one knows this better than the Federal Reserve. Since November 2008, the Federal Reserve has initiated three rounds of quantitative easing (QE) in an effort to create more economic activity and increase home prices.

What have three rounds of QE accomplished? It was supposed to increase lending, create more jobs, and lower the unemployment rate. Instead, banks are sitting on a pile of cash and remain tight-fisted, fewer jobs have been created, and the real unemployment rate remains high.

Flooding the markets with Liquidity that have not backing is spreading globally no wonder the markets will eventually get into a free fall.

If that is american taxpayer dollars, why do we allow it to sit in banks? We all have senators and representatives that we vote for. I contact mine, Cathy McMorris Rodgers all the time. Surely, this issue is one that we could all be united on.

Sadly we have learned from the past that we the American voters do not matter anymore when competing with the big dip pockets and backing the outsourcing of Americas production base for profits, they are the ones behind clapping when the dollar gets devaluated.

Is not by chance that our dollar is been destroyed, is a deliberated agenda and the government just go alone with it.
