Trader Reaction to the DOW Drop

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - The Dow's drop may be a record setting fall, but it isn't a crisis situation.

According to Heartland Investor Services, the Dow's recent growth means the consequences for this aren't that serious. It only amounts to a 4.6 percent change.

They predict a lot more volatility in the Dow going forward.

"Percentage-wise it's not a big deal. This is not to be unexpected. We see this all the time and we always will, it's just the nature of the beast," said Dennis Wang, Heartland Investor Services commodity broker.

The Dow actually fell almost 1,600 points Monday, but rallied about 400 points by the end of the day.
