NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The markets plunged Wednesday on disappointing economic data.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 178.84, or 1.48%, to 11,897.27. The S&P 500 fell 22.4, or 1.74%, to 1265.43. The Nasdaq slid 47.26, or 1.76%, to 2631.46.
Tim Seymour said on CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show that market overreacted to the eurozone debt situation and Greece, where the prime minister was desperately trying to deal with a crucial austerity bill amid violent protests.
Seymour said the markets are starting to see the VIX expand, making it a dangerous place to trade. He said it was surprising to see the markets respond so dramatically to today's events in Europe as if they were being heard for the first time.For a breakout of some stocks from a recent "Fast Money" TV show, check out Dan Fitzpatrick's "3 Stocks I Saw on TV."
