Stock exchanges across the world continued their slide today.
The Hong Kong index had its biggest fall for five years, while in India the stock exchange was suspended after a massive 10% one day fall. Indian police officers were put on watch over nearby rivers and canals for fear of trader suicides (seriously).
The FTSE and Wall Street continued to fall further after last week's drop.
