Here’s Why the Dow Took a Dive and What That Means to You

The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged nearly 1,200 points Monday, the largest single-day point drop on record. That performance came on the heels of the Dow falling 665.75 on Friday, and extended into international markets Tuesday. Despite the alarming nose-dive, advisers are calling the stock market decline a ‘price correction’ after a nearly nonstop upward climb since President Donald Trump took office.

Why did the stock market take the plunge?

There are two primary reasons for the stock market decline:

  • Fear of inflation due to higher wages, lower taxes and increased spending
  • And the expectation that interest rates are set to skyrocket

On the show today, Glenn broke down the how’s and why’s of the Dow’s recent dramatic drop and explains why he thinks there are reasons why we can all relax. Watch the clip above to see more.

What should you do about it?

According to financial advisers, the answer right now is: nothing. Just stay calm and carry on for the long-term — oh, and hang on tight, because it could be a rollercoaster-of-a-ride.

“This is something that is attention getting, but not yet something you should react to,” Certified Financial Planner, Ken Moraif, told CNN.

“Don’t be scared, and don’t be impulsive. Be disciplined no matter what the market environment, and keep saving and investing according to your long-term plan,” advised Kristina Hooper, chief global market strategist at Invesco.

“Let’s look at the big picture — the economy is improving, more people are working, they’re seeing more money in their paychecks, and tax reform will boost the bottom line of businesses and households. If the market is falling, that means it’s now on sale, ” said Greg McBride, Bankrate.com’s chief financial analyst.

UPDATE: The Dow closed up 567 points today, Tuesday Feb. 6.

EcoHealth Alliance's Peter Daszak: Hero or Villain? | Matt Ridley | Ep 126

Like most people, science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now? Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the Left practically worshipped Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology. In this episode of the Glenn Beck Podcast, Matt reveals the whole tangled web.

Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World’s Most Dangerous Lie

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.
