The bears ran their streak in TheStreet.com RealMoney Barometer survey to three weeks with a resounding showing. They got 1,185, or 51% of the 2,358 votes cast.
The bulls could manage only 667 votes, or 28%, while neutral came in at 506 votes, or 21%.
The bullish and bearish sectors have been exactly the same for three weeks now. Energy equipment and services is the sector most expected to rise this week. (Oil closed above $145 last week to a new high, but between yesterday and today is now down some $9 a barrel.)
The sector most seen falling this week is commercial banks, a main source of pain in the credit crisis of 2008.
Below are the complete poll results.
