Asian markets are down 2nfd day in the row; Europe seems to be green this morning. Here in the US premarket/futures are down drastically; there will be drop at the open. I sold few shares premarket to make sure my margins are not called. I think that the market will recover a; 11AM or Monday.
BX is affected because they are going to throw out the bath water with all the babies in it. Gold gown $30, oil down $5, Dow down 200+, NAZ 40, etc.
There will be rush of margin calls, and blown stop loss limits. I did not have any problem with my sell order some 20 minutes ago at Fidelity.
