Posted on Posted in Equity Markets

sp500-volume-%-moversThe  S&P 500 closed @ 2172.47 (-2.97 / -0.14%). Volume for the SPY exchange traded fund was -24% less than its average daily trading volume.

Declining issues dominated most of the high volume percentage changers.

  • Health Care related stocks such as St. Jude Medical (STJ), Allergen PLC (AGN), Express Scripts (ESRX) and CVS Corp (CVS)  experienced a second onslaught of selling on heavy volume.
  • Another significant pocket of weakness were Discount Retailers, with the likes of Dollar Tree (DLTR) and Dollar General (DG), both of which gapped down and violated key support levels under the pressure of high volume selling.
  • A big miss on earnings and downward guidance by Signet Jewelers Ltd (SIG) stripped almost -13% from its market value as shares traded more than 5 times their normal volume.
