    Here's the Thursday edition of the Fast Money Final Trade. The crew presents tomorrow's best trades, right now!

  • "[The] stock market: a loser across the board. It was a loser early, it stayed a loser and became a bigger loser as the day went on," Dylan summed up Thursday's trading with that one statement, as AIG and Wal-mart lead the Dow's one-day, 225-point dive. A few lone tech stocks were the only winners in an otherwise distressed market. Adding to the bearish environment was the morning's new jobless claim numbers, the highest reported in several months.

  • Retailers Disappoint as Tax Check Money Runs Out Thursday, 7 Aug 2008 | 11:02 AM ET
