For the first time since May, fewer than 15% of financials managed to hold above their 50-day moving averages. This comes during a poor market environment for the sector, with fewer than 50% of them above their 200-day averages. This has led to much worse returns than when more than 50% were above their long-term trends.; The Russell 2000 became the first of the 'big four' indexes to close below its 200-day average after all 4 had been rallying. It also ended a medium-term rally within a much larger downtrend for the index. Similar behavior in the past led to short-term declines, but not much beyond that.
