wow that's a huge drop. The dow jones was down -508 aswell. Just checked the news today Ftse -184. There has been some sort of bailout deal with the european banks which we the tax payer will pay for. The $850 billion bailout bill didn't go to wall street it went to foreign assets so what makes anyone think this european bailout will go to banks. Yet another bailout scam.

What has happened this morning was a joint interest-rate cut, which at least here made the stockmarket go a little on the positive side. However, as I understand it, it was the interest of Central Banks that was lowered. Norwegian central bank are planning the same, but I don't see why that matters. Private banks still have raised their interest rates regardless of any lowering elsewhere.

Hi, guys!
Can anyone explain, how does an interest rate cut works on an economy? In both sectors, real and market?

hmmm looks like their safety valve kicks in, buys it back to an 8% drop, then starts trading again, when it hits 9 it kicks in again...


9:39 back to 10%...

These buy-backs must be costly, what is a point worth on the Japanese market?

ok China's buyback seems to be when it hits 14,600, they buy it back up to 14,700 before letting it fall again...

Their method seems to be working better than Japan who gave up and closed trading...

We should know in the next 10 minutes if Japan closed it for an hour... or...
