I think the "sell off breakers" have to hit a certain percentage of the total value of the DJI before they kick in.
One thing I find a bit odd about this sell off is that there has not been a corresponding spike in gold/silver prices. Generally, when the stock market starts heading down, metals head the opposite direction as investors hedge their losses with physical assets such as precious metals.
I've been buying a bit of silver each month since that particular metal is hovering around its 10 year low. Gold has come down off its high of around 5 years ago, but has not fallen to a corresponding level as has silver which is why I haven't been buying gold; I personally think its still a bit over valued.
