Dow plummeting (another 159 points)
Good luck to anyone still playing the stock market this week - I'm still staying out. The Dow Jones plunged another 159.7 points overnight or 1.07%.
The falls have not been catastrophic yet, but the index has shed 900 points in less than three weeks.
Regular readers will know that my timing isn't always the best, but I'm claiming this one as a win.
The US could potentially face debt default within two weeks. There is unlikely to be much joy for stock markets until a resolution is reached - history tells us that on balance we will probably be taken closer to the edge yet.
