Does anybody know why exactly the Russell 2000 is up by 1.5% today, while both the Russell 1000 and Russell 3000 indices are only up around 0.5%?!? Seems weird to me...and unfortunate since I'm holding a decent amount of RWM shares, LOL. Guess I should have listened to Jman and bought DXD instead, heh.
And yet another day when Russell 1000/5000 are both negative, yet SOMEHOW Russell 2000 up a tad. I've dug into trying to figure out what component of the Russell 2000 is allowing this to happen but have yet to pinpoint an exact reason. Any others have an idea of why this happens again and again? Is it just that people love buying the Russell 2000 but not so much the other variants?
Your hair will turn grey if u try to understand how exactly each ETF or index works. Yesterday DOW was at first up only 0.4% but DPO which comprises the DOW30 went up some 1.2%, then DOW became negative but DPO was still positive. Some time just one stock can make the whole index go up. Both AAPL n MSFT keep NASDAQ from tanking lately. U should sell your RWM n buy some DXD.
