    The Russell 2000 made a new high yesterday, and it is now down on the day. It has been the market leader---I am cautious up here. Anybody else have any thoughts?
  2. Seems like that's what lots of other people are noticing too.
  3. While we're on the topic, how exactly are most small-cap funds riding this index, thru an ETF or futures? How do market makers usually hedge in the russell, given that there are 2000 names in there. Are there a few names that account for the majority of the indexes moves that they can concentrate their funds in?

    there is an IShares ETF that they might be using---along with the options and futures.
