Review of IWM
What this means going forwards
Key focus names for tomorrow into end of week
Let’s dive in:
A Look At The IWM
So… big day today out of small caps. Highest Volume In 1 Year (HV1), price % change over 5.5% which a look back over last two years hasn’t happened once, and a closing range of 99%.
Here are some other impressive price % gains from IWM over the past 3 years, but in your studies note none are like today.
Tues, March 24th, 2020: 9.15%
Thurs, March 26th, 2020: 6.22%
Mon, April 6, 2020: 7.66%
Mon, April 18th, 2020: 6.08%
Wed, Jan 06, 2021: 4.1%
