    Would this be a remote possibility for the cause of the 1000 point drop or am I dumb for even thinking this?

    Not even close. It appears to be a combination of some currency moves that lead the US markets, the NYSE briefly stopped their specialists from providing liquidity while the electronic markets kept trading NYSE stocks and a possible fat finger trade on the eminis. It was great fun if you have lived through it before. If you have you were not scared, you got aroused. :eek:
