Fastest correction in S&P history: correction we have seen in stock market over past 6 trading sessions is fastest 10% decline in S&P500 from a record high, DB says. Speed of the decline over the past week even beats Black Monday episode in Oct1987, where the peak was in Aug1987. pic.twitter.com/Y1SLjnaHkk

Maybe. Here's the point: The 2008 panic started in the spring of 2007 with HSBC earnings. The 1998 panic started in the spring of 1997 with a Thai devaluation. These things can take a year to spread and enlarge. So, the full impact may not be felt until 2021. A slow-mo avalanche. t.co/jx0jTblZsR
