Coronal Mass Ejection (CME)

Solar activity is high, the big sunspot which emerged on March 2nd, is crackling with strong flares http://spaceweather.com/

The strongest so far, an X1-class eruption, occured just ths morning, March 5th at 0413 UT.

The explosion threw out a coronal mass ejection (CME) that will reach the Earth's magnetic field on March 6th or 7th. http://solar-flares.info/

This should increase the negative mood in the financial markets
