    • There were no safe havens from a sector perspective as even utilities $XLU and consumer staples $XLP (the defensive sectors) sold off.

    • All other stocks I follow fell on moderately heavier volume led by $SLW and $EDU down 12.8% and 7.4%.
    • Many stocks I follow created gap downs so over time yesterday's closing lows in these stocks will be levels they will need to fill.
    • Based on stocks I follow the stock market direction is bearish and has been active 1 trading session after being neutral for 1 session.
    • The stock market direction has been bearish in two out of the last three trading sessions with the odd session being neutral.
