    In America, when someone fucks up badly they get promoted.

    Not when they cost the people at the top money. You can be a total retard, but if you make money for the right people, you're an asset. If you're a total retard and you lose money, you go into politics.

    All the news on TV are trying to pass it off to Greece's money issues and speculation that it could become America's problem in 3 years, but I have a very hard time believing that would cause such a sharp spike, especially because Greece has been in the toilet for a while and it wouldn't be such a sudden realization.

    obviously they're using investors like guinea pigs to see the reactions to specific events. I hate conspiracy theories but this really looks like it. I will never believe they don't have an automated system that tries to prevent those mistakes; I suppose they're saying the guy who made the "mistake" sold too many shares thus the price plummeted, yet I'm pretty sure anyone doing that at such an high level has stop loss selling price levels

    hell, even when I want to sell/buy my own shares I can't just plug in the price I want lest the java program telling me "WTF ARE YOU CRAZY?"

    I think we've learned three things today:

    1. Investors are herd animals.

    2. Investors are still extremely jumpy.

    3. Nobody honestly believes the current gains are real, and so are willing to sell everything at a moment's notice (expecting the bubble to pop).

    And we have the people in congress doing a 180 trying to stop the Audit the FED bill Ron Paul Introduced. Seems quite convenient. Stock market cut trading for just a little while, then suddenly the stocks went back up? Heh....

    Maybe somebody had a massive secret on Proctor and Gamble and just wasn't doing their insider trading very subtlely
