The Only Chart You Need to Understand the Market Right Now: StockTwits.com

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- There's been a vicious sell-off in momentum tech names over the last several months. Stocks like FireEye (FEYE), Yelp (YELP), Pandora (P) and Twitter (TWTR) have all been crushed on a three-month basis. FireEye is down 58% and Twitter is down nearly 40% over that time frame. But even despite the huge selloff in these tech names the S&P 500 and DJIA are both green year-to-date. 

The major indexes have largely remained positive on a year-to-date basis because of a strong bid within the utilities and energy sectors. While tech stocks have been getting slammed, the SPDR Energy Sector ETF, ( XLE), has quietly been hitting several new all-time highs. 
On StockTwits, a particularly eye-catching chart was shared today and it clearly demonstrates the rotation out of momentum tech stocks. The chart compares the NYSE's advance/decline line to the Nasdaq's advance/decline line and the spread between the two is absolutely enormous:
