Nacia, in financial circles "blood in the streets" refers to a "crash" or negative period when stock prices are down for "almost everybody".

If you invest when blood is in the streets, then you are buying at a low price point and if those companies survive the monetary value should ncrease and you will profit. Often profit greatly.

Edited to add: During the "Great Stock Market Crash" of 1929, there were stock brokers who committed suicide by jumping out windows along Wall Street. There then was literally some blood, and other squished parts in the streets.
