The bleeding continues. Today’s late day selling pushed the S&P 500 below its 200-day moving average for the first time in months. The NASDAQ declined below it’s long-term trend line a few days ago. The stock market is now technically in a down-trend.

At the Las Vegas Money Show this week, I spoke with many individual investors who were much more concerned about losing profit and principal than seeking out the next best performing ETF.

The attached ETF performance report gives a good snapshot of the largest and most popular ETFs and how they’ve fared during the recent market decline. Those that are below their 200-day moving average or 8% off the high are good "sell" candidates.
