The big banks stocks are under severe pressure today are leading the market lower, with J.P. Morgan Chase (JPM) down 2.7%, Bank of America (BAC) down 3.3%, Wells Fargo (WFC) off 3.8%, and Citigroup (C) down 2.3%.

Banks are getting beat up thanks to a terrible housing market and weak ADP jobs numbers. Without robust job growth, it is difficult to envision how the housing market improves, and banks already a lot of foreclosed homes. Moreover, a slowing economy could start to affect credit-card delinquencies in negative fashion.

Bottom line: The SKF is the weapon of choice today and could be for the coming weeks as U.S. Financial institutions come under fire.
