Question of the Day: Stock Market Crash

The market was down big Thursday - are you worried?

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 513 points on Thursday - a drop of more than 4 percent and the largest drop since the 2008 financial crisis.

Despite the United States recently coming to an agreement on raising the nation's , investors still seem to be worried about our high debt, as well as unemployment and overall slow growth in the economy.

Our Question for Friday is: Where do you think the market goes from here? Are you personally invested in the stock market? Are you worried about your 401K or IRA? Tell us in the comments.

Yes, but the event made me wonder as to how much was talked down by the savy charlatans bombarding the airwaves.

I agree with John. The general advice is to not sell out of panic. It is usually the panic selling that brings the market down and that is usually generated by fear reinforced by as John says, "savy charlatens on the airwaves"!

By itself, I don't think it's a catastrophic event. But taken in conjunction with The Downgrade, I'm more than a little bit concerned.
