Oh, the redundancy of those trading floor crisis images. This one from Tuesday, after the nosedive, was actually pretty good, though. Witnessing the power of Wall Street these past few weeks, the photo is spot-on. It really is the American Almighty.

And then yesterday, when all those traders scored on the rebound? Well, the market giveth, and the market taketh away. (And then giveth again.)
