Small Stock Set to Sink?

This index tracks the smaller stocks in the US market, and we’ve found a lot of success here in the past.

Despite the bearish trend, there may well be some upside in the making, so let’s look at our analysis for the Russell 2000 Index futures contract (RTY)…

And here’s how we see a trade potentially reversing out of the sell zone and perhaps shaping up on the bull side…

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. 

It will be a good idea to turn to the one hour time frame and to look for low prices in the buy zone.
