Poll: Few Americans panicked over market's gyrations

Despite all the recent wild swings in the stock market, Americans are not panicking about their investments, according to a new Ipsos/McClatchy poll. The poll found few investors selling or planning to sell, few saying they would stop making planned contributions to retirement plans or other programs that buy stocks, and increased confidence in bank deposits thanks to more generous government insurance coverage.
