Stock Market Goes Through Worst 2 Days in Years. Should We Be Worried Yet?

“We haven’t seen something like this since the Brexit vote.” “Just … a bit of a breather.”

Which analysis explains the unnerving drop in the stock market this week? The Dow Jones had a rough Monday, falling by 1,175 points for the worst single-day point drop in history. Wall Street had been enjoying months of a steady rise before Monday’s panic.

On today’s show, Glenn warned the audience that even if Monday’s stock market dip wasn’t the real thing, we are headed for a “massive reset” in the economy.

“I don’t think this is it, not yet,” Glenn said. “I believe this is just a correction.”

GLENN: Yesterday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1175 points. Today, it's down right now about 10 points. It was the largest single-point drop on record. But that doesn't really mean anything. Because, you know, the Dow is at 25,000.

The performance came on the heels of the Dow falling 665.75. Not 666, on Friday.

You can round it up. But that's not the way numbers work. Barely two weeks ago, the Dow peaked at 26,616. Then between last Friday and yesterday, it lost over a month of gains. It's the worst two days the stock market has seen in almost two years. However, the market is still up 26 percent in the last year. The typical annual growth is about eight.

Too much, too fast perhaps. One director at the brokerage firm said, this is the first time in a while I'd say it feels like borderline panic-type selling. We haven't seen something like this since the Brexit vote.

But a director at a different firm said, the markets are just taking a bit of a breather, which I'd argue is somewhat healthy. Yes. Things like this actually slow down a melt-up. You don't want money to just keep piling in, piling in, faster and faster and faster.

That's dangerous. So is this a snowball, or is this just really nothing? Is it a snowball that's going to lead to an avalanche, or a snowball that's going to be made into a snowman?

Some bond investors are spooked about there being more inflation on the horizon than they originally forecasted. In its effort to slow down inflation, the Federal Reserve has caused a lot of problems in the past, when it becomes overly jumpy and tweaks interest rates too much. Investors got nervous that the fed might do this and do their usual tinkering and make things worst yesterday. A lot of this over the past couple of days is psychology.

The market has gone so high, people are worried that it doesn't make sense for stocks and bonds to stay at the level that they are, so they're tapping the breaks. But what happens if the breaks are out and we're headed downhill? That's possible because the last hour of trading yesterday was a combination of AI and humans.

Humans can tap the brakes. Once it breaks barriers, however, and the stock market is controlled by AI. There is nobody stepping in saying, wait. Wait. Wait. This is panic selling. Don't.

That's why it dropped, what was it, 500 points in just a couple of minutes. The government is also borrowing more money than ever. Retirement funds are in crisis. You couple these conditions with the volatility in Europe, and add on the immigration issue over in Europe and here.

And the world seems to be on the verge of a massive reset. However, I don't think this is it. Not yet.

I believe this is just a correction. But here's the super good news for you: I'm always wrong on timing.

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?

Big Tech now censors the stories of WW2 VETS too?

Rishi Sharma, founder of Heroes of the Second World War, has spent years interviewing as many World War II veterans that he can. His life passion, he says, is making sure these heroes' stories are recorded and preserved so future generations will never forget their sacrifices. But — perhaps unsurprisingly — Big Tech now stands in the way. Rishi describes to Glenn alleged censorship he believes his YouTube page — which contains many of these WW2 vets' stories — has experienced in the last year. "Makeup tutorials get a billon views, but the men who fought for our freedom...why can't they get the same attention?"
