A stock market in crisis, in which one company has gone under and all others are losing market share.
This is happening right now, as Twitter has lost about a third of its market share in the last five years.
Facebook is down about a quarter, Amazon is down an additional third, and Google is down almost a third.
Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram have all lost at least a third in the past five years, according to research firm Morningstar.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is down just under 200 points this year, and the S&P 500 is down a whopping 4,000 points.
This all sounds bad, but the stock market has always been in crisis.
That’s because the world has never really seen a stock market crash, let alone a stock crash like this one.
This is the first time in history that the world’s largest stock market is in crisis mode.
Stock market crashes are extremely rare.
This year, the Dow Jones was down more than 500 points in less than a week, but it has bounced back since then.
Stock markets have always had this ability to recover from a crash.
It’s a sign of the times.
This stock market crisis has happened before, but not because of Twitter.
That crash occurred during the height of the dot-com bubble, when companies like eBay and Google were losing their way.
It was a bubble bursting, but investors still got rich.
In the late 1990s, the dot.com bubble burst and the economy was in the worst recession since the Great Depression.
The financial crisis that followed didn’t have the same level of destruction.
The Dow has hit new highs for almost every year since, but nothing like this is possible in the stock markets.
This was the biggest crash since the financial crisis.
It could have been worse, but people didn’t care.
In other words, the bubble didn’t burst.
The stock market did.
The next major stock market downturn is likely to happen sometime in 2018.
That could be a good time to look for ways to keep the stock prices in check.
