why was their a stock sell off RIGHT at the time of the closing bell and continuing after hours? were reports at the last minute of trading?
i mean , right at the last minute of trading the Dow, Nasdaq and the S & P 500 fell over 2 percent ...why? was there earning reports at the very end or why they waited till the very last minute?
