We never saw this in stocks

Much was written about this week's equity selloff, being the biggest drop since Sep 2011 etc. But two additional pieces of analysis we uncovered is that this week's 3.6% decline in the S&P500 single-handedly erased all of the prior 3 weeks' BACK-to-BACK GAINS. The last time this had happened was the week after the October 2007 record. Guess what stocks did after that... A more dangerous finding is that this week's S&P5 500 decline took place after SEVEN weekly consecutive gains, which was NEVER seen before in the index. I will post in Monday's Premium Insights new trades to exploit these developments.
