I can't agree with others it has anything to do with the UK election. A hung parliament has been expected for a good 2 weeks & the polls are still open.


Agreed - but a hung parliament tomorrow will be more fuel to the fire.

Agreed.


Check this out, folks:

US markets plunge on continuing Greek debt concerns



US stockmarkets have plunged in New York as concerns about high levels of European government debt continued to shake investor confidence.

Stocks fell steeply on fears that Greece's debt problems will spread and halt the global economic recovery...

...There are fears that banks which are still recovering from the 2008 global banking crisis are exposed to Greek debt.

It's so frustrating. Everyone knows they've been tinkering with the scoreboard.

But that's a serious increase of volume.

How does it move down that much in a couple of minutes unless Goldman and the others used their high frequency trading programs all at once?...

Global stocks extended the biggest three-day drop in more than a year, the euro sank to the lowest since March 2009 and Greek, Spanish and Italian bond yields surged on concern European leaders aren’t doing enough to stem the region’s debt crisis.

Great article.


And now that we know it's just a question of international exposure to European debt we can all relax. Bailouts always sort these things out...

Non farm payroll jobs number for the US tomorrow morning, FX traders be careful..your dealers aren't going to play around and probably won't offer much liquidity tomorrow..

DOW probably closing in the 10,400 range today, I think everyone is still in shock, tomorrow will be interesting.

There had to be a fist to cuffs in the SP pit

That had to be the biggest volatility event in history in SP 500 Futures

'You waking up my friend?

(Nice to have you on side.
)


The article in my last (but one) post has just been updated with this:


Investors were disappointed that earlier today the European Central Bank did not take fresh measures, such as buying Greek bonds, to help stop the Greek debt crisis.

"Right now you just have a panic sell," said Keith Springer, president of Capital Financial Advisory Services in Sacramento, California.

"It could be a long-term negative for stock market because it could mean the long-term high is in place. It's very likely we've seen the highs for this cycle."

However, others said the volatility could be down to electronic trading issues rather than worries about Greece.

"This is an electronic market where bids can be cancelled at the flick of a button, and everyone cancelled at the same time," said Joe Saluzzi, of Themis Trading in New Jersey.

"We should be down big today, but not 1,000 points. This is an equity market structure issue, there's no major problem going on."

"Go back to sleep..."

I just need 2 things answered for me


1) How does the DJIA drop 500 points in 5 minutes

2) How does the DJIA jump 500 points in 2 minutes after that


Someone needs to find the T&S for these events

I am not going to believe it until then

Yeah! and then we can have international exposure of the American debt, again! - the national U.S debt AND THE DEBT OF EACH STATE which are on the brink of bankruptcy! - that'll certainly be fun!


American financial intitutions and speculators are waging economical warfare against Europe and the €uro.

It's about time the financial institutions of Europe are striking back - HARD!!


Wall Street can take their betting against Europe and wipe their butt$ with!


Let's rock'n'roll

This could be the first true sign of complete and utter chaos reigning in Europe, Greece is effectively finished, the riots are growing every day.. and now Germany's Parliament is struggling to get enough supporters to bail out Greece.

On top of that the treasuries surging in Italy and Spain show that there's no stopping it.. Ireland and the UK could be next. All 4 countries are much larger than Greece.. Greece had a relatively small economy... if we see the like of Spain or Italy go under.. dear God, there won't be a Euro left to compare the Dollar to!

Tomorrow: I predict a rise on all major indices.
Sorry to spoil the doom.
