The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged more than 696 points at its low today, brining a dismal end to the worst week the stock market has experienced in two years and its biggest point drop since the 2008 financial crisis. The S&P 500 also dropped, losing -2% as the NASDAQ fell -1.7%.

The latest market free-fall only underscores the fragile nature of Wall Street and the need to invest in assets that will hold or increase in value when the stock market takes a nosedive.

What exactly caused such a drastic and sudden plummet? According to CNBC, a stronger-than-expected jobs report resulted in higher interest rates and put Wall Street in a panic. The last time the DOW shed more than 500 points in a day was June, 2016.
