Currently on a buy signal as of October 8th. It is marked at the top of the chart under the heading PnF pattern.
The box size adjusts to volatility and there is resistance at 10318 and will change within a tight range depending on volatility usually by 1/2 of one percent or 50 dollars. The blue line is called the Bullish Support line!
...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.
...366. $RUT - 1 hour Candlesticks, 1024 3
1173 has been a price level where the Russell 2000 has changed direction 8 times since Oct 31, 2014. (not 2015)
Watching where (not when) price has changed momentum or direction before offers insight into the next price that the process may repeat.

..411. NASDAQ 100 Shares (QQQQ) candle
Now the activity is at 108.00 +/- a small margin of error.
Now we can see that within the margin of error of 1/2 of one percent that 104 +/- .50 cents has been an important level before.
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.
