4 Price Charts You Should See: Bank Stocks Are Showing Relative Weakness

For whatever fundamental reasons, that's not the case this time around. You can see this easily by examining the price charts for the major bank index and for a few of the best know bank stocks. They all seem to have topped out earlier and find themselves unable to keep up with the wider index that reflects the stock market as a whole.
