Russell 2000 Futures Rally Update: The Slingshot Candlestick

Russell 2000 Futures: Some Perspective On The ‘Trump’ Spike Lows

All major U.S. stock market indexes have been on a tear since the election night reversal. But one that really caught my eye was the Russell 2000.

Looking at the Russell 2000 futures chart below, you can see that big ole candlestick wick during the night of the presidential election. From lows to highs, that single candlestick measured 109.5 points.  Whoa!

Ultimately, that reversal worked like a slingshot to help propel the Russell 2000 out of a danger zone and up to all-time high levels from June 2015.  This area (up to 1314) may act as resistance near-term.  Put it on your radar.

All told, the rally from the Russell 2000 Trump spike lows to the current highs has been 16.42%. How the index reacts here will be an important ‘tell’.  Stay tuned.
