We broke the Russell 1,000 into deciles (10 groups of 100 stocks each) based on individual stock price moves over the 3-day decline leading into today.  We then calculated the average performance of stocks in each decile today to see which stocks are moving the most.  Below is a chart showing the average change of stocks in each decile.  As shown, the decile containing the 100 stocks that went down the most during the 3-day pullback is up the most today, with the average stock gaining 3.8%.  The 100 stocks that held up the best during the pullback are up an average of just 0.90%.  Investors are definitely doing the most buying in stocks that got hit the hardest recently.
