Why did the US stock market collapse when the UK decides to leave the EU?


For those who are financial savvy, can you explain why our stock market dropped 600 points when the UK voted to leave the EU? I was under the impression that the EU was formed to strength the European nations in trade with the rest of the world. If a weaker EU results, would that be a good thing for America and the Far East?
