World markets down sharply after Dow drops below 9,000

Friday, October 10, 2008

European markets were taking a hit Friday morning. A wave of panic selling began on Wall Street last night, then ran through Asian markets with historic falls in Tokyo. The FTSE 100 plunged by more than 7 percent in early trading and trading was cancelled in Russia because of the uncertainty in other world markets.
