As if this week wasn't already stressful enough on Wall Street, at the end of Tuesday trading, Google's stock dropped over 200 points to $249, due to what the Nasdaq is calling "erroneous orders." The share price has since rebounded to $415 in after-hours trading. According to a comment from the Nasdaq to Reuters, "Transactions at or above $425.29 and at or below $400.52, that were executed between 3:57 p.m. and 4:02 p.m. EST, would be wiped out." That means that those who may have cashed in on this error are going to be out of luck.

Even though the situation is being rectified, this incident has certainly caused even more uneasiness in already shaken investors.
