Dow Jones Industrial Average Celebrates “Four More Years” With Biggest Drop In A Year…

— zerohedge (@zerohedge) November 7, 2012

The Dow Jones intraday drop is now 2.23% (and rising), greater than the biggest drop so far in 2012 record on June 1. The last time the market plunged as much: literally one year ago, or November 9, 2011. Sadly, it appears that one can’t have their Dow Jones Industrial Average and redistribute it too.

For many Twitterers, the news didn’t come as much of a shock. But it still hurt:

I see the DOW is not pleased today

Why is the DOW crashing? Maybe because more than half this country voted for a moron who hates business? Ya think? #tcot #P2

By its very nature, the stock market fluctuates. But the day after an anti-business, anti-free-market president won reelection, the Dow’s performance could prove to be a sobering — and frightening — preview of what’s to come if we don’t restore a pro-growth agenda.



The $DOW closes down 313 points, the single worst day in 2012.
