It's been a pretty rough week for the U.S. equities market, with all three major indexes headed for steep weekly losses. While the fate of this month's price action may have been decided on Tuesday, it's still worth looking at some additional data culled by Schaeffer's Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White to see just how bad things are currently.

For starters, 34.9% of S&P 500 Index (SPX) stocks are at least 20% off their 52-week highs. It recently hit 40%, which is the loftiest amount since late 2011.
