    iShares Russell 2000 (NYSEArca: IWM )
     
  3. Also, there are options on both RUT and IWM. Not sure about that Russell Growth index.

    The ICE mini Russell 2000 Index is a nice spread trade versus the CBOT mini Dow contract.

    What's up with Russell vs. SP500 lately?

    I am long the Russell and it's rough.
     
  7. S&P supported by King Ben. Russell left to die?

    Just a theory.
     
  8. Large-caps are "too big to fail". :eek:
    Small-caps have to survive on their own. :(
     
  9. Nah, Russell had a great year last year and needed a bit of a rest. In my intermediate term account (horizon = a few months) I got back in today.
     
  10. Can you elaborate your thinking in this trade?
