Retail Relative Strength

So back before Thanksgiving I did a post Something to Think About Before Black Friday | rChart + dygraphs.  Well since then I have noticed that Retail relative strength has deteriorated considerably.  I thought it would be a good time to use good old bfast (see posts) to look for a structural breakpoint.  Below is the output.  And yes, I do plan to make interactive eventually with rCharts.


The remainder is what I think is very interesting.
