Russell 2000 Not Confirming Uptrend

Published on July 31, 2012 by in Market Comments

It’s always a little disconcerting when the Russell 2000 doesn’t confirm an up move in the S&P 500.  It tells us that risk isn’t really back on yet and that this might just be a correction of the move down from the early April high.  Looking at the chart you could see RUT stalling in March and now it appears to be stalling again.

We’d like to see the Russell break back above 818 on the next move up.  Over the next few weeks we want to see it hold the 50 and 200 day moving averages.  A break below could give us early clues that the move down from April is under way again.  If it breaks the next stop for the S&P 500 is probably 1200.  But hey, if we get to 1200 SPX the good news will be more QE.
