  • From FinancierAdeel:

    $RTY positioned for a monster sell tomorrow IMO. May drop 60 points.$ES is stranger. Historically markets drop tomorrow but this one may rally. What’s changing my bias is the volume near the 225 level. We caught a bid.

  • From TraderKarthik:

    I’m not saying that this can’t be an actual, sustained bounce but if it is, $RTY wants nothing to do with it, which is suspect enough for me
