UPDATE: $IWM Russell 2000 Gaps Down Through Support Levels


Chart made with TrendSpider

Last week I wrote: “Today, IWM gapped down at the open right at 155.52, and pin-pricked swiftly and deeply right through all three levels of support – an alignment of the 50-day moving average, 200-day moving average, and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement – before recovering and closing green on the day (see chart at the very top). The price action formed a long wick hammer candle, doing exactly what it needed to send a bullish message to anyone remaining long the index. It remains to be seen if this area holds, but there is a well-defined risk-reward setup at this confluence of support.”

Today, the Russell gapped down *again* and this time blew through all support. The market is choppy, and without any clear sense of trend, I would be very hesitant to take a bullish or a bearish stance. Better to wait it out and let the market choose the direction.
