Glitch Drops Google Stock Price $200 in Four Minutes, Wiping Out $62 Billion At probably like the worst time ever for your stock to plummet harder than a meteor on a collision course with Bruce Willis, a glitch knocked $200 off of Google's stock price—that's half—in the span of four minutes as the markets were closing today. $62 billion. Erased. In four minutes. The glitch has been fixed, bringing it back to the correct price of $407, but some trades actually did go through at the bargain basement price. While they'll be repealed , it shows you that it's so crazy out there even computers are going nuts right now. [TechCrunch ]
