Sometimes, big things come in small packages…

That’s especially true for small stocks, which can provide big trade opportunities. 

And today, I’m going to showcase how the big index for small stocks in the Russell 2000 Index (RTY) is setting up for some great trading opportunities.

Let’s take a look at capitalizing on what we see as a potential trade developing in RTY and review what’s happening inside the daily and hourly charts…

The RTY daily time frame is in a down channel.

The market hit the bottom of the channel and is now pushing bullish towards the top of the channel price point 1,904.20, about +1,315 ticks above the market.
