Editors Note:

The 15-point opening drop in the Russell 2000 was better than expected. The Russell had the potential for a much deeper decline but recovered promptly after the opening drop. This is very encouraging even though the index only gained 6 points. The Russell is now up 11 of the last 12 sessions and it is approaching strong resistance at 1,463. We are still in danger of a longer consolidatio0n period.
