Market sentiment is bearish. The indices were sold back into its oversold condition on big volume. The Royal Bank of Scotland came out with a recommendation to sell everything as they are expecting a bear market for 2016! There are still big divergences in the indices. Nasdaq 100 and S&P 500 still have quite a bit of catch-up to the Russell 2000 and Dow Jones Transportation. The Russell 2000 has already entered a bear market and the rest of the indices are expected to follow suit.
