Another Black Monday

Although I’d rather see the market go the other way, the crash of the North American stock markets today was a sight to behold. Following (eerily) in the footsteps of several previous Black Mondays (1929, 1987), perhaps Monday, September 29, 2008 will go down in history as the beginning of a serious global financial crisis, after the United States House voted down the proposed $700 billion bail out package. With the 777.68 point fall, the Dow Jones had broke its single day point loss record. Here are a few other market finishes at a glance.

  • Dow Jones -777.68 to 10365.45
  • NASDAQ -199.61 to 1983.73
  • S&P 500 -106.62 to 1106.39
  • TSX -840.93 to 11285.07
  • FTSE 100 -269.70 to 4818.77
  • CAC-40 -209.90 to 3953.48
  • DAX -256.42 to 5807.08
