Stocks Suddenly Slammed - Nasdaq Plunges Into Red

Well that escalated quickly...

Some chatter than Lawrence Lessig's comments on regulating 'code' spoked some of the mega tech stocks, FANG tumbled...

VIX spiked back above 10...

 

And in case you were looking for a catalyst, there is none (same as with the panic-bid at the open).
