Just as many, especially Saul, have been ruthless to rethink when individual companies have diminished prospects, maybe it's prudent to adopt the same mindset to big sector-wide shift.

Hi Bashuzi, but that's the big difference, isn't it. There are no diminished prospects for these companies. They are not falling on any company specific or even sector specific news. They just all fell together because of probable programmatic selling which was then augmented by stop-losses, forced margin sales, and panic selling. There are no "diminished prospects" at all in that scene.
