Lower Prices Ahead

The IWM may have started the year strong, but look for weakness in the near term.


Despite green tape in Tuesday’s initial trading, a look at the Russell 2,000 ETF’s (NYSEARCA:IWM) chart pattern shows why lower prices are likely coming.

Video Transcript

Bottom line, the market looks to finally be heading lower, though we probably have a little bit of support around the $90 level on the IWM, which is still a little ways away; that would be the February lows.

Once the IWM takes out its February lows, then we’ll get into a gap area from the first of the year. Then, once we take out that, we’ll be talking about a lot lower prices.
