Shares investing update – everything tumbles

Watching the indices of today there is a strong impression (I think not only from doitinvest.com) that shares are going down and never stopping. It should be so in a sea of bad economic news and recession warnings.
First of all Merril Lynch is going to sell $8.5 billion of shares and liwuidate a big amounts of its bonds investments in order to cover the mortgage losses. If this is not a desperate move, then I don’t know what else isn’t!
Then, the European banks shares (UBS, Barclays) and Nomura Holdings have fallen, sending the MSCI World Index of investments to a lower level fourth day in a row. On top of them, Akzo Nobel and Alcatel have seen more losses, based on bad news coming from their boards of directors.
As a result, all of the major stocks indexes are falling on virtually all the markets:
