The markets are getting hit very hard and traders may want to prepare for further weakness. Let's take a look at what is working and what is not.
Treasuries (TLT): As equities get hit hard, the bond play is looking good again. I talked about this on Friday. Move up your trailing stop as this ETF rallies.
Medarex (MEDX): This biotech play rising on positive prostate cancer news.Upgrades: Ameristar Casino (ASCA) and Waters (WAT) are rallying on analyst moves. Well-Known Names Bucking the Downtrend: Coach (COH), Visa (V) and KB Home (KBH).

Financials: Goldman Sachs (GS) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) leading financial gauges trading lower. Transports: We're examining railroad, airlines, truckers and package-delivery plays all weak.
