Weekend Linky Dinks

All four of the major averages ended the week lower, but the Russell underperformed, falling 7.0%. The S&P was next in line, down 5.0%, followed by the Dow at -3.6% and the Nasdaq at -3.4%.  Among sectors, Financials led the way, declining 12.1%. It wasn’t the only sector to see sizable declines, though, as Industrials lost 7.6%, Consumer Discretionary fell 7.3% and Energy decreased 6.8%.  All ten sectors that make up the S&P 500 ended in negative territory this week. Profit taking for sure, the question is will it be the start of a prolonged downturn. More on that tomorrow evening. Enjoy the links.
