The final three black candles in this series represent a decidedly bearish formation referred to as "3 crows."  After rising prices, the three crows are a considered among candle technicians to be strong reversal signal.  So although the fundamental data might suggest dispassion or even some optimism, but if you adopt the philosophy of a technical purist for a moment and believe that "price discounts everything," this technical indicator is a bad sign for the rest of the week.  It will be interesting to see who loses between techs and fundamentals.  Observing times like these can help add to our own foundation of decision making preferences.  Stay tuned!
