Stock Market Panic Dow Crash 1000 Points Before Fed Steps in to Buy

Stock-Markets / Financial Crash May 06, 2010 - 02:56 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe sovereign debt crisis shock waves emanating out of Greece triggered a stock market Free fall crash today as the Dow sliced through support after support to all the way below Dow 10k, hitting a low of 9,872 before the Fed as part of the Plunge Protection Team (PPT) stepped in to halt the panic selling and triggering an equally phenomenal a 700 point reversal less than half an hour from today's close.


The imbecilic banking sector led the collapse in stock prices as a consequence of the sectors huge exposure to subprime government bonds such as the Euro Zones PIIGS that continue to slump in the face of a defacto Greece Debt Default.

The stock market rally has been in an increasingly weakened state as it entered the window for a significant correction that was forecast to occur between early and Mid May (23 Mar 2010 - Stocks Stealth Bull Market Trend Forecast Into May 2010 ).

My weekend analysis (02 May 2010 - Greece Debt Crisis Storm Cripples Stock Market Rally Resulting Stock Price Churn ) concluded that the crippled rally which just managing to hang onto support at 10,974 at the time was less than 40 points from the SELL trigger of 10,970 (there had been NO Sell trigger triggered since late Feb 2010) which would initial target a trend to 10,750 and then 10,550. Both of those levels went up smoke in today's panic stock market price action which demands in depth technical analysis that will follow this weekend, preceded by yesterdays fundamental analysis on the sovereign debt crisis emanating out of Europe's Achilles Heel (05 May 2010 - Greece Economic Depression Resulting in INFLATION NOT DEFLATION Surge ).
