A $9 Billion Day

Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce giant that is bigger than Amazon and eBay combined, sold more than $9 billion worth of goods Tuesday during its annual "Singles' Day" shopping holiday. "Singles' Day," which Alibaba CEO Jack Ma made up to take place every Nov. 11, is the Chinese equivalent of Cyber Monday in the U.S. and is the biggest shopping day of the year globally on a revenue basis.
