Looks like it is back up now, but slow. And the market has recovered hundreds of points in the last few minutes. The Great Panic of 2:44-2:49 PM 5/6/2010.

Fidelity won't log me in.

When do those circuit breakers kick in?

Wow - the discount to NAV on some of these ETF's looked pretty amazing around 2:45 or so. VTI, for example looks like it was trading 33% off it's opening value this morning, whereas the NAV was probably never down more than ~10%. Intraday 20%+ discounts to NAV. Shoulda coulda woulda bought a truckload full... (this is based on yahoo finance's data, which may be very very wrong!)

Will see if this is the first time I lose a 6-figure number in a single day. :-(

That's it! I am driving my meager RV to Alaska and stay there until this storm passes, if ever...




Wait! Is this the time I am supposed to buy, buy, buy? Going 90% equities?

Managed to get a buy order in at Fidelity but can't confirm that it has be executed - everything has slowed to a crawl.
