Russell 2000 Technical Analysis

<p>On the daily chart below, we can
see that after the strong <a target=“_blank“ href=““>US
PMIs</a> the price has broken the key 1920 <a target=“_blank“ href=““>support</a> level that was previously a
strong <a target=“_blank“ href=““>resistance</a> for the buyers. </p><p>The <a target=“_blank“ href=““>moving
averages</a> have now crossed to the downside signalling a change in trend. The
price has been consolidating just below the 1920 level as the market probably
awaits the key <a target=“_blank“ href=““>economic
data</a> in March to see if February was just a blip or a real reacceleration in
economic activity and inflation due to the easing in financial conditions.</p><p>In the 4
hour chart below, we can see that the price has erased the losses seen after
the hot <a target=“_blank“ href=““>US
PCE</a> report
last Friday. It may be a sign that the market wants more data to confirm the
change in the expectations and archive the current talks of seasonal factors
skewing the data. </p><p>A retest
of the 1920 level may be in the cards and that will be the last line of defence
for the sellers, while a breakout to the upside may give the buyers some
conviction to target the swing level at 1960, but such scenario looks unlikely
unless the economic data miss expectations.</p><p>In the 1 hour chart, we can see
that the <a target=“_blank“ href=““>divergence</a> between the price and the <a target=“_blank“ href=““>MACD</a> was signalling a weakening
selling momentum which ultimately led to the current pullback. </p><p>There are two possible spots
where the sellers may start piling in. The first one is the <a target=“_blank“ href=““>trendline</a> and the second one is the 1920
resistance. Given the data, it’s unlikely to see the price breaking up the 1920
level with conviction, so the sellers should remain in control going forward.</p>
