"Black Monday," as the day's been dubbed, was even trending on Twitter, with analysts and outlets alike marveling at the drops. But some don't see it as calamitous.
"It's a reminder that there is such a thing as mean reversion and these things are healthy. We haven't had a correction since 2012; we were due for one," GAMCO's Christopher Marangi told Bloomberg.
The sell-off stems from fears about the strength of China's economy in the wake of its devaluation of the yuan. At this rate, those fears don't look to be abated soon.
