The Fight is On — Which Way Will the Russell Turn?

All of the major benchmarks are back in a neutral state…but for how long? But, if we look at our shorter-term readings (not shown here) most of the benchmarks are in a very oversold state so a push higher over the next day or should not be unexpected. However, don’t forget the huge gap up that has yet to close in almost every ETF we follow. I expect we will see the close of the gap before March expiration arrives.

As for the small-caps, the Russell 2000 ETF is hovering around its upward trendline from late 2012. It dipped below $118.50 today and if it manages to stay below those levels we could see a new overhead resistance form. My positions certainly would enjoy a reprieve over the short-term.

If you are a believer in a statistical approach towards investing please do not hesitate to try my options strategies. I use simple mean-reversion coupled with probabilities for each and every trade. Give it a try, it’s free for 30 days.
