Editors Note:

The Russell actually posted a gain, but it was minor. A 3-point gain is nothing to cheer about but at least it was a gain. The 1575-1585 range has contained the index for the last four days. Eventually there will be a breakout/breakdown and right now, the indications are very slightly positive. We just need that catalyst to drive the market back to the prior highs. Investors are waiting.
