I'm sorry for being quiet today folks. Times like these simply aren't about the markets.
My heart goes out to the Japanese people. I can't imagine witnessing what you see below.
US futures are plummeting as Japan attempts to prevent a nuclear panic. The Nikkei is now down over 20% in the two days since this crisis hit.
That's all I have to say right now because I am deeply saddened by what is going on. Japan was already struggling with a 200% debt to GDP ratio before the earthquake hit. Let's hope this crisis doesn't put them down for the count economically.
I suggest everyone donate to the Red Cross if they have the means to do so.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Japanese people.
