The performance of the Russell 2000 is often seen as reflecting sentiment about the U.S. economy, as the companies tend to be more domestically focused versus the relatively international firms in the S&P 500.

    Don't Forget the Bonds

    Interest rates have indeed rallied smartly from three weeks ago, when the yield on the 5-year Treasury note hit its downside target.
