What are the reasons behind the Dow Jones Index crash?

What are the consequences of the crash?
Crashes, as a rule, tend to lead to material losses and bankruptcy.
As a result of the index drop, banks and corporations are losing trillions of US dollars, the large-scale destruction of financial institutions happens. People are deprived of housing, pensions and savings. Considerable losses occur in the world's markets , credit lines get closed and panic sets in.
All of this underlines the devastating consequences of the LFS virus - the Lack of Financial Security.
The LFS virus is underpinned by the the fear index.
What is the fear index?
Stock market crashes usually lead to "the fear index" (VIX - Volatility Index) rise. This indicator reflects the level of concerns that stock market trading participants have and helps to see the extent of the panic.
If the fear index is 15, it represents the optimistic outlook of the market. At the time of the crash it can soar to high levels. People get terrified, fearing of going broke and losing it all.
The fear index determines the lack of Financial Security.
During the February stock market crash in 2018, the fear index has risen up to 126%.
What can protect your assets?
In order to understand how to act and capture the moment, knowledge and hard work are required.
Only stability and clear understanding of what will happen tomorrow can protect you from the Lack of Financial Security virus.
History repeats itself, crises abruptly absorb companies and corporations. Any decline is the consequence of the LFS virus. Dollar loses its value, tension grows. Nobody in the whole world knows what will happen tomorrow. In times of uncertainty, gold becomes a safe asset for businessmen. By purchasing gold, you can be sure that investments will pay off.
In 1999, one share of Dow Jones could be bought for 45 ounces of gold.
Now you can get 18 ounces of gold per share.
It is evident that the index lost its positions, going down by 30%.
Here is the yield curve of the Dow Jones index gold to silver ratio:

Leading world powers gradually accumulate gold reserves. In January 2018, gold reserves of the American gold stock funds increased by 27,6 tons.
European stock exchanges have enhanced the fund of the yellow metal by 7,6 tons. In Russia alone, 57 new gold deposits were discovered in 2017. In the year 2018, the country is planning to increase gold reserves up to 175 tons of gold.
