    People get stuck in the past. Maybe ten, certainly twenty, years ago a 700 point drop would have been a calamitous event. If one doesn't update one's perspective from time to time it might be cause for a freak-out. Also, it's a larger swing then usual, but the market's been anything but usual for the past year.

    The globalists are freaking out. Virtual slave labor camps in China used to destroy the middle class manufacturing jobs in America are being taken off the table thanks to President Trump.

    But if a 3% drop puts you in psycho mode you are a part of the problem not the solution.

    This is completely untrue. You don't know what you are talking about and neither does Trump. Those obsolete shitty jobs are not coming back (Thank God!). Robots replaced them.
