  1. The rally takes a day off

    Stocks were off sharply to start the holiday shortened week, and although we did get a decent push higher into the close, the Dow ended the day down 302-points and the S&P 500 basically gave back all of Friday's big gains.

The Financials got a big boost from Goldman Sachs and Bank of America giving the XLF a 2% gain, and those financial stocks in the S&P 500 accounted for basically all of the gains.
