Often the question about the trend of the market is asked. How do you know and what is the breaking points. Today such a question was asked in relation to the Russell 2000 Small Cap Index.

For the R200, the short-term trend will show a break below 779.62 and a more important support will be eliminated at 762.95. In addition, the 20-day MA and 50-day MA are both sloping up.
