|Retail Stocks Review|
Retail Stocks' overall trend, revealed by trends of price, leverage, and time, are defined and discussed in the The Matrix for subscribers.
Retail stocks have been underperforming the boarder market for 20 weeks. The old trading adage "it's not problem until its a problem" says the majority doesn't care.

It can also suggests a consumption pause, a slow down that doesn't trigger a recession or bear market.
