This is from Investopedia

 An event that occurs when the contracts for stock index futures, stock index options and stock options all expire on the same day. Triple witching days happen four times a year on the third Friday of March, June, September and December.  This phenomenon is sometimes referred to as "freaky Friday". Investopedia explains Triple Witching...

From me: Don't panic, look for deals when the market is under 8500
