...36. Russell 2000 Small Cap Index ($rut)
The TED LINES won't change (they have been posted in advance for months and sometimes years) and they are where price will change momentum or direction.
Support and resistance is not based on pivot points, or theory, it is based on objective analysis of price activity over the life time of a trading instrument.
The only thing we can objectively define in advance is support and resistance. What else do you really need to know. (except understand the methodology to find it) Support and Resistance based on price analysis may be objectively defined.
You are the judge! You can evaluate the outcomes on these charts.

February 13th The number of stocks on the Russell in X's is 253 more than at the end of January.

One message! If you know how to to accurately find support and resistance you can make it work for you.
If you don't know, you don't know! It's in my e-book!
It is all about objectively defining where price has changed momentum or direction in the past. These are the TED Lines and they are posted in advance are are light years ahead of any other indicator.
