Two Historic Days

August 10, 2011 by Jennifer

Two unbelievable and historic days of market gyrations in response to S&P’s unprecedented downgrade of U.S. government debt. Monday August 8th saw a 5.5% drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, followed by a 3.98% rise on Tuesday August 9th in response to the Federal Reserve’s announcement that it will keep short-term interest rates near zero through at least the middle of 2013.

This time-lapse video was created by taking successive screenshots of the StockTouch iPad app at 1-minute increments during both trading days.
