Stockalypse (stock + apocalypse)

"Stockalypse” (stock + apocalypse) is when there’s a disaster in the stock market with a sudden collapse in stock prices. The term “stockalypse” has been cited in print since at least January 2000, but remains little-used.

A similar disaster in banking is called a “bankageddon.”

Years Ending in ‘0’ Are Zeros for Stocks
By Pierre Belec
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Watch out for years that end in zero. They’re bad for the stock market. In fact, they’re often big zeros.

Wall Street was given a taste this week of “Stockalypse 2000” as the Nasdaq composite index had a meltdown of 230 points, its largest one-day point loss ever, on Tuesday.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - It’s a betting game that the entire world is watching, as Wall Street investors could determine the course of the economy in the United States and abroad. Do they have the nerve to drive stocks up?

The lesson: In times of Stockalypse, people tend to run to the sidelines, buying fewer stocks while holding back on selling until the smoke clears.
