Banks Underperforming Even As Interest Rates Rise


The regional S&P Bank ETF (NYSE:) broke its major trendline within the past week. This was positive news for the bears of the world (AKA me, Baby Bear, TNR, and four other people).

This positive news has gone super-positive, as the H&S topping pattern of KBE is now complete. Banks are screwed and tattooed. It couldn’t happen to a nicer group.
