The S&P 500 is up 0.5 percent and the Dow is down 0.5 percent since the start of 2018, but the Russell 2000 has risen 2.3 percent. Furthermore, the... more
We've suspected for a while now that investors weren't really as bullish as the quick look at the chart would suggest. Mostly, they're indecisive, not really sure what to expect. After Thursday's closing bell rang, we know for sure. The S&P 500 topped exactly where we would have expected it to on Wednesday, but with Thursday's loss we can also... more
