Editors Note:

The Russell 2000 posted the biggest percentage loss of all the major indexes. We just can't seem to maintain any forward momentum and while the losses are minor they are still losses. The big cap indexes lost only 0.1% and the Russell lost -0.35%. There is no conviction among buyers or sellers. Volume remains low.

The new short on Signet started off good with a 79 cent decline.
