No time frame, reckons it will be caused by the US government debt problem.

Will cause panic and not the volume to buy the stock on the way down, stocks could go down 20% to 30% one day.

Old guy from Seaport called Ted always bit bearish, said a while ago the DOW should be worth about 8,000.

I thought there was in something place now to stop trading in flash crashes now since the drop in 2010.

As I'm currently trading futures I'm staying up tonight. Hoping for a bit of a sell off early hours (uk).

Plenty of tea and biscuits at the ready and a couple of cheap DVDs from Asda

Flash crash happens so fast, seconds or mins.

Sounds like there is a circuit breaker in place.

If it works.

Probably be a non event after me talking it up.

I go for AUD/USD keep any eye on the ASX & FTSE for any levels I like.

Preference is buy the dips in the current market.
