Global markets are literally red

October 10th, 2008

I’ve been watching the fall of global markets over the last weeks on a cool tool provided by the Financial times. Go to and click on the Equities – Macromaps: Markets image halfway down the page.

Just hearing or reading that the DOW has fallen by 8% or the Russian stock market has dropped 15% in one day doesn’t really give you an idea of what’s going on with global markets. Looking at this map, indicating in red (mostly) and green whether markets are falling or rising, gives you an instant snapshot of what’s happening to markets worldwide, and it doesn’t look good.
