INDEXDJX:.DJI – Stock Market Recovers From 9% Plunge

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) was able to pull out of a nose dive and ended up closing above 10,000 at 10,520.32, even though it was down sharply at -347.80 (-3.20%).

The NASDAQ was -82.65 (-3.44%) to close at 2,319.64.

And the S&P 500 was down -37.72 (-3.24%) to close at 1,128.15.

Wall Street reeled through a volatile day, with stocks closing sharply lower after recoiling from a brief plunge of nearly 9 percent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 347.80 points or 3.2 percent, and the S. & P. 500 index
dropped 37.75 points or 3.24 percent, after fears over Europe’s debt crisis and computer-driven trading sparked a massive selloff. The euro slid to $1.2616 to the dollar, and investors fled to Treasuries, gold and other safe-haven
investments, according to the NY Times.

It will be interesting to hear what Jim Cramer from Madd Money has to say tonight. It will more than likely be a show with nothing but buying opportunities that are on the table for tomorrow.

I do know that with Apple stock prices down sharply today – most due to the downward pull of the overall market – Cramer sees AAPL as a buy.

The overall markets droped 9% today, testing the boundaries of 10,000 points, before it ultimately recovered to close at 10,520.32.
