After its worst two-week start to a year ever, the Dow Jones industrial average stands just below the key psychological level of 16,000.

More important to the math geeks, the Dow is almost three standard deviations below its 50-day moving average, a condition it's been in for just 0.6 percent of the trading days of the last 35 years, according to Kensho, an analytical tool used by hedge funds.
