    Stocks are getting crushed on Thursday, and the major indexes are seeing their worst two-day drop in eight months.

    Near 1:00 p.m. ET, the Dow was down 267 points, the S&P 500 was down 31 points, and the Nasdaq was down 110 points. The Dow and S&P 500 were down 1.5% and the Nasdaq was off more than 2.2% at these levels.

    Among the biggest losers on Thursday were the so-called "FANG" stocks, comprised of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google as each fell more than 2% with Netflix the big loser, falling more than 7%.

    The tech-heavy Nasdaq has been the best performer this year and these 4 stocks were the major leaders of this rally.

    Oh no I thought NetFlix will bang the market soon. But the pre-assuming result shows negative activities. Lets see what happens to the next week.

    Stock markets in Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Qatar crashed

    Stock prices in Gulf states nosedived on Sunday in a massive market sell-off sparked by descending oil prices, with the Saudi and Dubai bourses leading the slide.

    The Tadawul All-Shares Index in Riyadh, the Gulf's leading market, shed 549.51 points, or 6.86%, to close at 7,463.32 points.

    The kingdom's all-important petrochemicals industry lost 7.94%, while the real-estate sector tumbled 9.50%.

    They are unpredictable though. It'll always fluctuate.
