Dow Is Down 100% on Google Finance

According to Google Finance, the Dow is currently trading at 0 (down 12,190 points), which effectively means that the stock market has she all its value in one trading day, and all companies listed under the Dow are completely worthless. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the image below:

And here’s a second picture (in case you don’t believe me) showing the index on the top right:

GOOG, on the other, is trading at $487.01, down $6 or 1.22%. By looking at the value of the Dow, I guess Google is doing very well!

Of course, this is a glitch (which I saw around 5:45 PM EST today), but it’s a scary glitch. Come on Google!

PSS: Google now fixed the problem, apparently the Dow was only down 80 points, phewww…
