Russell 2000 created one of the largest/bearish wicks in years last week (see post here)  This wick was up against falling resistance, which was a great place to score on defense in the Russell, by picking up RWM.


Was this single day pattern important?  Yes…as the Russell 2000 fell over 12% following this pattern, which also means RWM made 12%.  Last week I shared that more often than not, a single day pattern isn’t that big of a deal, yet I highlighted this wick and bought RWM due to how key it could be. 

In falling markets, if you are willing to score on defense, you want to go short/look to score on defense into rallies and this was a prime spot.  Historically making 10% a year is the average return on stocks…keep these opportunities in mind, because RWM made 12% in a week.

Keep a close eye on the resistance at (2) in the above chart…it very well could create another opportunity!
