Tonight, news are coming in from across the world about collapsing stock markets:
- The Nikkei is currently down 3.1%
- The Hang Seng is down 3.6%
- The DAX is down 1.9%

US Futures are pointing down big time:
- The S&P500 Future is down 1.9%
- The Dow Jones Future is down 1.7%

Most of the fantasy news that suggested speedy recovery, stabilizing home prices, and a return to US consumer behavior as we know it have been depleted. There is, on the other hand, lots of terrible news to come. From industry data, to a potential insolvency of the FDIC and an ensuing request for another $100 billion from the taxpayer, this week will certainly be a turbulent and volatile one.
