In case you weren't paying attention, the stock market crashed today. The Dow Jones industrial average lost more than 512 points, or 4.31%. It was a disastrous day by any standard -- we have not seen a loss this big on a single day since the financial crisis in 2008. If you're an investor, or are thinking of investing, this may be a great time to start looking to buy in for the longer term. Tomorrow should be interesting. Will the market bounce back, or are we in for more panic? Is Europe's debt problem bigger than we think? Is our debt problem bigger than we think? Are we headed for the long-feared "double dip"? I certainly hope not, people have been hurting for too long to have another financial disaster thrust upon them. So keep your eyes open and get ready to jump in if you're looking to "buy low".
Today's stock market crash inspired this playlist of "down" songs by alternative rock bands who were big in the 1990s.
