The markets have been exceptionally weak so far with the worst of the declines coming on Monday. The S&P 500 (NYSE: SPY) sold off 2% Monday, closing back below the 200 day moving average once again. For the week the SPY is in the negative by about 3% as each bounce is met with selling pressure.The Nasdaq 100 (NASDAQ: QQQ) has also been quite weak so far thanks to a strong selloff in tech names on Monday with some reported news about a slowdown in production of iPhones from so...
