Let the bloodbath in the markets continue. 

After an attempt at a reversal Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average crashed in the early afternoon. By 3:04 p.m. EST, the Dow was down about 1,500 points. Some of the world's biggest stocks led the markets lower, which is certainly not a good sign. The Dow finished down 1,175 points. 

Top Dow laggards included 3M (MMM) , Chevron (CVX) , Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Action Alerts Plus holding General Electric (GE) . Oddly enough, Action Alerts Plus holding Apple (AAPL)  only slid 2.5%.
