    I'm not sure, but the market makers aren't currently showing a buy or sell quote on the index warrants that I checked. Maybe it was just a coincidence on the particular ones I looked at. They wer an hour ago.

    In 1987 the market gapped 50%. We're down 5% on the day...

    The ASX has no shut down limits like the US.
