An exciting session in Europe and it looks like it's continuing in global markets today. All Ords currently -4% and although there was a wave of buyers a short time ago they have since been swamped by sellers. Every sector is seeing serious selling with Energy no.1, -6.8% followed by Mining -6.1%. Utilities is down the least, -2%.

Devastation in the miners: BHP -4.5%, RIO -7.7% and in the golds, Newcrest -7.4%, Newmont -3.7% and Lihir -5.8%.

Oils also copping it: Woodside -6.3%, Santos -5.2% and Caltex -6.3%.

Pretty funny. At 7PM EST the little S&P and NASDAQ charts up page are blank.

Best place for futures quotes, from the source, CME, 10 min delay.

Where the futures show little change, it's because that's versus 4PM today in the round the clock electronic markets.

Scottish Widows Halts Payouts From Two Property Funds

Jan. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Scottish Widows halted some withdrawals from two real estate funds, becoming at least the sixth British fund operator to freeze redemptions since the beginning of last month.

The Scottish Widows Property Pension Fund and the Scottish Widows Property Life Fund, with combined assets of 2.15 billion pounds ($4.2 billion) and 200,000 investors, will impose restrictions for 180 days.

Cash held by the funds has dropped to less than 2 percent of combined assets, the Edinburgh-based insurance and pensions company said in a statement today. Scottish Widows is owned by Lloyds TSB Group Plc.

I wonder if Scottish wifes open an account at Scottish Widows while their hubbies are still alive?

"Scottish Widows Fund and Life Assurance Society opened in 1815 in what is now Chambers Street, as Scotland's first mutual life office. The formation of the society had been discussed from March 1812 with the purpose of providing for widows, sisters and other female relatives of fund holders so that they would not be plunged into poverty on the death of the fund holder during and after Napoleonic wars."

Talk about a total rout! All Ords finished -7.3% with Energy taking the honours as the biggest loser, -10.1%. Miners were next, -9.3% followed by Materials, -8.6% and Consumer Staples (predictably) had the least loss, -5.2%.

Huge moves on the miners: BHP -6.9%, RIO -11.6%. Golds also down in a big way, Newcrest -9.6%, Newmont -5.2% and Lihir -13.5%. Juniors, which have held up reasonably well, were creamed.

Oils bit the dust: Woodside -10%, Santos -6.9% and Caltex -6.4%.

Asia just unbelievable: India -9.8%, Honkers -8%, Taiwan -6.5%, Nikkers -5.7% and China -5.2%.


We await fallout in UK/Europe: :ph34r:

Red line is yesterday's close and the dark red one is today's, right back to 2006 levels now. There's no real support at the current level so All Ords could hit 5000 before the dust settles...
