Small Caps Break Down; Where's Support?


The Russell 2000 fell for the third consecutive week and its 2.70% loss last week fell below its rising 20 week EMA for only the second time in 2017.  It was a significant violation and now this index is staring at key price and moving average support in the 1340-1350 zone:

Note that the rising 50 week SMA is currently at 1349, providing further support in that 1340-1350 area.  If all that support fails, then the next price support level would be the June 2015 top just below 1300.

Happy trading!
