    S&P 500 closes in an official 'death cross,' a chart pattern that could signal more pain ahead

    A scary chart pattern, called the 'death cross,' formed in the chart of the S&P 500 on Friday, signaling traders that there could be more selling ahead. The death cross formation appeared in the chart of the small cap Russell 2000 index just over three weeks ago, and the Russell has lost 4.4 percent since then. The death cross means the market could stay "lower for longer," said one technical strategist.

    Citigroup Says Pain in Small-Cap Stocks Is Just Getting Started

    The Russell 2000 Index of smaller firms fell 0.8 percent Wednesday, capping a five-day decline that erased its year-to-date gain for a second time in as many months. Fundamentals are going against small firms, Citigroup said. Dips in earnings estimates have been more evident than large-caps and with higher leverage, smaller firms are more vulnerable to rising interest rates.

    Small caps just entered a 'death cross,' a chart pattern that means trouble for the stock market

    Small-cap stocks just entered the dreaded death cross, a technical development that traditionally suggests weakness ahead for an asset. The Russell 2000 , comprised of small-cap stocks, has taken it on the chin in recent weeks. On Wednesday, the index's 50-day moving average crossed beneath its 200-day moving average — what would be the "death cross" formation.

    Stock market charts point to more trouble ahead: Small-cap stocks close to 'death cross'

    When the stock market's direction is especially uncertain, stock charts can be road maps, and now some are sending warnings. The S&P 500 closed below its 200-day moving average for a second day Tuesday, the sign of a possible trend change, while the small-cap Russell 2000 appears to be heading for a negative "death cross" formation. Market bellwether Apple closed below its 200-day moving average Tuesday, and if it stays there, strategists say it could take another leg lower and signal more negative sentiment for tech and the broader market.

    [$$] A Reality Check for Small-Stock Investors

    For most of 2018, small stocks continued to deliver the kind of double-digit returns that other asset classes could only aspire to. While the S&P 500 index posted a gain of 8.5% in the first eight months of the year, the Russell 2000 small-stock index responded with a 13.4% advance. Throughout 2018, the list of top-performing funds in The Wall Street Journal’s quarterly Winners’ Circle survey, measuring the best-performing actively managed U.S.-stock funds, has been dominated by these small-cap-growth managers.
