Tell a perma-bull the S&P 500 has been up for 17 of the past 18 Mondays, and they'll probably feel pretty good about the health of the market and economy.

Not so fast.

A deeper dive into the data reveals the picture isn't so rosy:  

  • Despite a +0.18% gain for the S&P 500 yesterday, 68% of stocks were down for the day
  • Seven of 11 sectors were down, led by Real Estate (XLRE) at -1.4% 
  • Meanwhile, the Russell 2000 dropped another -1.3%, now down -13.1% since July
