Market Correction

The market tanked last night and it was a sea of red in my IB watchlist. It's not surprising to see that whenever the market slips, it always falls alot harder than when it climbs. Last night's decline in the major indices wiped off more than a week's gain by these indices. Recent momo stocks like GOOG, MA, GS, CAL, NYX etc tumbled the hardest. If you were short or traded puts, you are one happy man :)
