Wow, What Happened?

Yeah, so I’m reading up on my daily stock market news and what do I find?

TSX falls more than 300 points

In that article, they also list some of the dismal performances by the other worldwide indices today. Here’s a roundup.

  • TSX down 303 points (2.7%)
  • Spot gold prices have fallen $120 since May 12th (16%)
  • Dow Jones down 170 points (1.6%)
  • Nasdaq down 41 points
  • S&P 500 down 15 points
  • Nikkei 225 down 3.07%
  • Indian stocks down 4.7%
  • Australia down 2.35%
  • FTSE 100 down 1.7%
  • DAX Xetra 30 down 1.9%
  • CAC-40 down 1.8%
  • Hang Seng down 366 points (2.32%)
  • Taiwan index down 4.2%
  • South Korea index down 3.5%

Stocks have come off their lows quite a bit at this point, but it can be seen that today was generally not a good day for the markets. You mean even killing the ‘monster’ al-Zarqawi couldn’t bring joys to the hearts of the free world?

In other news, if I get the job I had an interview for today, I will jump for joy. But most likely not. What are the chances I’ll be chosen out of an original 136 applicants…?

  1. Ahh… interest rates are adjusted once again of course 🙂

    US and Canada both just increased their interest rates the week before too and no one was crying and bitchn’ about it. I dont see why this is such a surprise.
