Small Caps Nearing Important Juncture on Multiple Time Frames

stock charts, chart analysis, price analysis, financial markets, stock market bar chartBy Andrew Nyquist
Relative underperformance on the Russell 2000 (IWM) was a leading indicator of internal weakness as the markets were topping in September. Since that juncture, the small caps have continued to struggle, channeling lower for the past 7 weeks.

But on both the daily and weekly bar charts, the IWM is nearing a critical juncture. On both charts the IWM is nearing its 1 year uptrend line and on the weekly chart in particular, the index is resting on its 20 week moving average. As well, the weekly chart is at risk of turning its MACD down, which would be a red flag on an intermediate term basis.

The next week or two should be telling. Trade safe, trade disciplined.
