    Which is the subject?

    Hi there!

    Could you see the sentence below?
    (CNN) -- Stocks in Asian and Pacific markets fell in early trading Thursday following a dramatic day in Wall Street that saw a more than 500 point drop.

    I'm not sure which phrase the underlined that refer to. Does it refer to a dramatic day, or Wall Street?

    Thank you.
