Stocks Flash ‘Caution’ as Bellwether ETF Loses Most Since 2012

  • iShares Transportation Average ETF lost $108 million Monday
  • Key sector continues to underperform their industrial peers

Transportation stocks are sending cautionary signals, and exchange-traded fund investors are taking note.

Investors pulled $108 million from the iShares Transportation Average ETF, ticker IYT, on Monday -- the most for any single day in seven years. The outflows came as the ETF’s underlying index, the Dow Jones Transportation Average, continued its downward spiral, punching through 50-, 100-, and 200-day moving averages.
