In today’s Chart of the Day, we highlight historical bear markets for the Russell 2000 which just officially entered bear market territory today.  After running into resistance at its 50-day moving average at the end of 2015, the Russell 2000 has been in complete liquidation mode for all of 2016.  As a case in point, there has only been one day so far in 2016 where the index closed higher than its opening level.  As a result of this weakness, the index is now down more than 10% in 2016.  If you think deflation has been solely confined to commodity prices, think again.
