Editors Note:

The Russell went from lagging to leading and it was not pretty. The Russell declined -2% to lead the big cap indexes lower. Major support was broken, and bullish sentiment was crushed at least for the small caps. Since the small caps normally lead both up and down the major decline suggests the market is about to move lower. The 10-week rally may have run out of yellow brick road.
