    We are £180k down on our RBS shares. We have a Bond which matures mid April and will be buying a further £175k’s to average down to about £2 per share. Hope it continues to drop in the meantime.

    My pensions are with Aviva
    Looking at relatively historical "collapses"

    In the most extreme drop, it took 8 years for S&P 500 prices to recover after the dot-com bubble burst in 2000, which was immediately followed by the crash of 2008. Following that crash, it took about 6 years for prices to recover to their previous all-time highs.

    But what we have here is a flu bug that'll disappear in six months. The more worrying aspect is oil prices, but that shit's happened before

    They have opened - and hit the circuit breaker that holts trading due to losses within 20mins. On the third circuit breaker they will close for the day.

    Looking like the worst day of all time on US markets if they close at this level. Trump wont like that on his CV.

    7% circuit breaker for 15 mins, then another at 13%, then done for the day at 20%.
