Oh, how the last hour of trading seems to be brutal on Wall Street. Just like yesterday, the Dow took a nosedive just before the closing bell. Stocks sank more than 400 points within 60 minutes leaving the Dow at its lowest level in five years. Blue chips ended the day down 678 points at 8,579. You read that right. The Dow is now below 9,000. It's at its lowest level in five years and has lost 40% in the past year. Ouch!
