Stock Market Crashes Click on graph for updated image in new window.

Note that the Great Depression crash is based on the DOW; the three others are for the S&P 500.

Investors didn't think much of Secretary Geithner's outline of a bailout (we can't really call it a plan).

DOW off 386 points or so ...

S&P 500 off 43 points (almost 5%)

NASDAQ off 67 points (about 4%)

Another day of Cliff Diving.
