This week's stock market nosedive doesn't appear to be letting up.

On Friday, Feb. 9, the Dow Jones Industrial Average pared earlier losses to trade higher 0.51%. The S&P and Nasdaq followed suit, up 0.7% each.

Any losses tallied by the closing bell Friday will follow up a savage Thursday, Feb. 8, that saw the Dow shed 1,033 points, or 4.15%. The S&P declined 3.75% and the Nasdaq plunged 3.9% Thursday.

As Treasury yields skyrocketed and the Cboe Volatility Index surged more than 20% Thursday, the Dow fell below 24,000 for the first time since November 2016 in its second-biggest point decline in history. The S&P dipped under its 100-day moving average and hit a new low for the week.

Here are the highlights from Cramer's timeline Friday as Wall Street hunkered down for another day in the red.
