    Even though my team's portfolio is not doing well, some sort of healthy correction was due after late 2017 / Jan 2018 performance.

    We are down 6%.

    At 7% - the breakers will automatically stop the trading to prevent a further tumble.

    We're still below the 50EMA on the SPY so unless things creep above again, there's still a lot of room to the downside.

    US Markets (specifically 30 of the largest companies) dropped 5% before recovering 2%

    A Redcafe thread was made and people discussed it.

    Two readers were said to have been frightened.

    Sounds like technical selling. The market breached a key technical level and crashed through it, at which point things went bad very quickly. Although now it seems to have recovered at least half of what it lost 30 minutes ago.

    There will be a lot of champagne flowing in NY after 4:00pm. Quite a few people will have made millions in a hour.
