O-M-G.

Did you catch the license plate of that Mac truck that ran you over on Monday? That was the generally feeling of many investors as the Dow Jones Industrial Average at one point traded down 1,600 points.

The session closed with the Dow down 1,175 points and with more questions than answers as to what triggered the violent pullback. Some attest the otherwise flash crash to fears on rising bond yields all starting to hit at once. Others pin it on issues with program trading and subsequent blown VIX ETF funds. Whatever the cause, volatility is back in the stock market for the near-term. Get used to it, and take nothing for granted.

Here are several of TheStreet's key stories from the Dow's historic day. Stick a bookmark on this page and refer back to it frequently ... yes, stocks do go down, sometimes by a lot.
