Squawk From the S&P 500 Futures Pit During the "Flash" Crash on May 6

The "flash" crash on May 6, 2010 was amazing. And since there is a good chance we'll be having a crash like that again soon, here's a live squawk from the S&P 500 futures print during the crash.

At 4:20 in the video, the bid/ask spread on the S&P 500 futures is a gigantic, incredibly wide, 10 points.

This squawk is done by a company called tradersaudio. I wouldn't normally listen to something that given my long-term investing style, but during a crash I think it would be helpful.
