Small Cap Stocks Reverse Lower From Price Resistance

Chris Kimble

The broader stock market is turning sharply lower to begin the week.

First it was the lagging large cap stocks…

And now it is the small cap stocks turn.  The timing is impeccable.

Looking at the chart below, you can see the widely followed Russell 2000 small caps index is testing overhead trend line resistance… and reversing lower.

The rally took the Russell 2000 to the top of the rising channel (last week)… this resulted in a potential reversal pattern as they closed the week well off the highs. And with today’s push lower, things are looking shaky.

As well, the upper trend line resistance coincides with the 161.8% Fibonacci extension level. Careful here!
