Let's be clear, the blame is solely on Bloomberg. They posted the news without doing any background work at all, and didn't even bother reading the entire article in question. Google is a an agragator, not a news journalist, and anyone who thinks of it as anything else is a fool. Blooomberg should be held solely responsible for the whole thing, as they are the ones who chose to snap on breaking news without giving it half a second's thought.
On the plus side, as a day trader, as I understand it, you could have made a quick/huge profit off the dip, then resulting jump back up. But I don't really understand the stock market.
