Wednesday, the market continued the prior days' sell-off.

Indices Daily Charts

This has placed the overall market trend in a pivotal area as more sectors begin to look weak.

This can be seen in Mish’s Economic Modern Family which consists of one index and 5 important sectors.

Currently, the Russell 2000 (IWM), Retail (XRT), Semiconductors (SMH), and Regional Banking (KRE) are in cautionary phases, with the Biotech space (IBB) sitting in a distribution phase.

A cautionary phase is when the price is under the 50-Day moving average but over the 200-DMA.

This phase normally follows a bullish phase, where the price is still over the 50-DMA as seen in the transportation sector (IYT)

Additionally, because the transportation sector is over its 50-DMA, it is the last sector in a bullish phase within the Family.

This does not look great for the overall market picture and could be showing more chop and a bigger pullback is in form.

With that said, a cautionary phase does not mean we are taking a bearish stance.

Many times, a symbol can trade back and forth between phases before continuing higher or breaking down.

A good example is how IWM has consistently traded between a bullish and cautionary phase for the past 2+ months.

Moreover, we can watch how each Family member performs and if the ones that are still near their major moving averages can recoup back over the 50-DMA.

Recently the transportation sector has been the shining star of the bunch.

However, can it still hold up if most of the Family members are heading lower?
