Stock Market Closes Below 12,000

Item: Dow closes below 12,000 for the first time since March/Christine Hauser, New York Times

More Info: Stocks on Wall Street closed sharply lower on Friday on sentiment that analysts attributed to a sense that the global economy was slowing and that European debt problems were entrenched. The three main indexes closed off more than 1 percent, with the Dow Jones industrial average closing at 11,951.91, down 172.45 points, a loss of 1.42 percent. The last time it closed below 12,000 was on March 18, at 11,858.52.

Question: Are you worried by this six-week swing?
