Bad Night For Stocks Economy

Stock markets around the world are crashing overnight.

In Asia, Tokyo's Nikkei index lost 9.60% and Hong Kong's Hang Seng lost 8.30%.

In Europe, as I write this, London's FTSE index is down 7.01% and Paris' CAC is down 7.30%.

Yikes.

Update (4:50 AM) - FTSE down 8.70%, CAC down 9.80%.
