Silver and Gold Mining stocks fell throughout most of trade and ended with about 2% losses.

Platinum gained $0.50 to $1835.25, and copper fell 6 cents to about $3.97.

Oil fell as the US Dollar index and US Treasuries rose on reinforced worries about the global economy – worries that sent stock markets lower: 

  • The Dow closed down 3.68%
  • The Nasdaq closed down 5.22%
  • The S&P closed down  4.46%

Among the big names making news in the market Thursday were HP, MGM, AOL, and BofA.
