Taking It To The Streets: Worried About Your Finances?
Tewksbury residents at the Tewksbury Recreation Complex give their opinions on the economy.
The roller coaster nature of the stock market is no secret. On Thursday the U.S stock market fell about 6.5 percent, enough to be called a "panic," this according to dailymarkets.com.
Forced selling by hedge funds and "panicky selling by people who watch too much TV during the day" were to blame for the drop, according to the site. The good news is that on Friday the Dow rebounded to close with a gain of 125 points.
Regardless of the week ending on a gain, people have been paying attention to market fluctuations, specifically pertaining to how they affect 401Ks and retirement plans. Tewksbury Patch caught up with several residents to see how they felt about the market and how it affected them.
