Despite the sharp drop in futures Monday morning, many investors appear prepared to hold their ground in the face of the biggest market moves in years.
More than 7,500 people answered an unscientific CNBC.com survey over the weekend asking what they planned to buy and sell Monday, and 37 percent said they would sell "nothing."
Only 4 percent of respondents indicated they would sell "everything" today.
"China economy is cold, dollar is strong, and the rates will be hike[d]," one person in the "sell it all" camp said, while another said simply "looks like '08."
Another 13 percent said they weren't buying anything today.
