    Is there a site that specialises in the R2K index/futs? I'm looking for a general commentary/sentiment kind of thing not trading tips on individual constituent stocks. A general news site like marketwatch mentions it occasionally but I would like more detail. The last few days is a good example of something I would like explaining - on the 20th everything dumps but on the 23rd/24th the ER2 comes roaring back while the other big indices ES,NQ and YM limp back. Is it a results thing atm? Lots of questions.

    If anyone can point me to something useful I would be very grateful.

  2. Gee, if anyone had known in advance the russell would be so strong, he would have bought lots of ER2's and go for an extended vacation to some warm spot.

    Personally, I don't know either why do people like everything but american big caps. Strength everywhere else, in american small caps, asian, european, emerging markets....

    The Dow is a sight to behold.... at around the same levels as Feb 2004.... two years ago... WTF???

    EDIT some analysts are predicting big caps will outperform this year, but I don't know, maybe if they fall they won't fall as much as the small caps???

    errrr, thanks, I think!?!

    I'm not after predictions just some kind of market commentary that would say something like "today the R2K did this because of this that and the other and was also influenced by that and this and that is why the strength/divergence over the main headline indices".

    Maybe its not out there.
