High 2,169.65
Low 2,127.32
Close 2,167.60
200 period moving average: 2,155.00

The Russell 2000 Index is currently trading at 2,167.60 which is 0.58% above its 200 day moving average. This instrument is trading above its daily pivot point of 2,137.23, which is a short term bullish factor. Looking further out, our proprietary medium term trend indicator is bearish. The Directional Market Index is negative. Significant trend force is detected in this market, therefore opening a position could be justified in the direction of the trend,
which points to further downside potential.

This instrument has been trading within the 2352.79 to 2073.64 range since the beginning of 2021. The rising trendline support line which originated in March 2020 has been broken at 2231. The weekly MACD trend is bearish. A break of support at 2073 will put focus on the Fibonacci 38.2% retracement level from the topof the 2352.79 - 1013.89 range which comes in at 1841.

Elasticity Toolkit from Metastock

The Elasticity Toolkit for Metastock was created to obtain maximum gains in both sideways and trending markets with minimum risk. Developed by Timothy Straiton, the system performs with incredible results in almost all equity markets with a daily periodicity. The Elasticity trading system focuses on short-term market fluctuations and takes advantage of deviation or "elasticity" from the mean price. Imagine the action of a rubber band being stretched and at the moment where the expansion loses momentum, a contraction takes place, forcing movement in the opposite direction. The Elasticity trading system signals a trade at the moment the deviation from the mean loses momentum.
