8.38am - UPDATE - Correction, not a collapse (yet)
The UK’s FTSE 100 gained 7.6 percent last year and many analysts say that this is not yet a crash, but a timely correction.
Yesterday, James Hughes of AxiTrader said: “Stocks look like they are set for a correction of some sorts after huge losses over the last few sessions that has left many bulls worried that the bull run may have come to an end."

7.53am - UPDATE - More losses expected
The FTSE is set to open a huge 4.7 percent down according to online trading company IG.
It was a harrowing day's trading for the UK's blue chip firms after more than £27 billion was wiped off the value of London's top-flight index as a sell-off ripped through global markets, culminating with a huge slump in the Dow Jones.
The FTSE 100 lost 1.4 percent as it fell to its lowest level in around two months.
This session was the fifth consecutive day of losses for the index, its longest losing streak since November, in a broad-based sell-off where only a handful of stocks were trading in positive territory.
The Nikkei closed down 4.7 percent
After dipping by 7.1 percent, Japan’s Nikkei 225 index bounced back a tad to finish on -4.7 percent at 21,610.24 points.
In Australia, the ASX200 ended the day down 3.2 percent, with the All Ordinaries was down 3.23 percent.
The Aussies lost A$60 billion from the index.
