Over on Twitter, here were the top tweets about $RTY:

  • From theMlKD:

    @apollotradingsd Why not just straight short $RTY? What’s the near term catalyst up for $YM? It’s not as options/whale sexy as tech, yet it does benefit more from Fed/ZIRP/cronyism, but no one’s buying planes…oh who knows.

  • From HakCapital:

    Keep an eye on $RTY vs $ES / $NQ. Fully expecting RTY to run up on drops, as investors may pile into value as bigger names see some pullbacks.

  • From WaitCapital:

    $ES nearly +30 from entry and trimmed a lot. $RTY perking up — a signal for stimulus enthusiasm.
