Truth is timeless: “Markets never change” – Jesse Livermore, 1923 The early masters, Livermore, Wyckoff and Loeb isolated themselves from the crowd and crowd thinking.

  • Russell 2000 Small Cap: Squeezes Out A High 0 comments
    Nov 12, 2013 6:47 PM | about stocks: IWM

    The iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSEARCA:IWM) was heavy most of the session until the last two hours of trading where the index moved higher into the close.

    Volume increased by 41% from the prior session. The IWM posted a gain on the day of 14-cents to close at 109.50.

    It may not appear to be so, but the index is still sub-dividing lower.

    That could all change at the next session. For now however, we see from the daily chart below that the IWM is still sub-dividing lower with successive lower highs and successive lower lows.

    The last sub-division high (our stop) at 109.81 has not been breached.

    The fact that IWM volume increased by over 40% from the previous session, posted a marginal gain of 14-cents and was not able to post a new high, still favors the down-side.

    As previously stated, we are not short the IWM, but rather long the Direxion Russell 2000 3X Bearish ETF (NYSEARCA:TZA) with a stop at 20.39.
