Before the last market pandemic crash in March 2020, the Russell 2000 index had been consolidating for about a year from Feb 2019 to Feb 2020 before taking the plunge in March 2020. The index suffered a 42% decline within a month’s period.

Russell 2000 - Is Another 2020 Covid Pandemic Style Crash Coming? The Current Price Action Is Looking Similar to The Price Action Before the Crash Happened in March 2020.
The current price action pattern seems to bear some resemblance to that of 2019, the Russell 2000 has been consolidating within the 2121 to 2173 range since February 2021, made an attempt to break out of the range in November 21 but failed and this price action is eerily similar to the pattern prior to the 2010 pandemic crash.
Recently, I have posted another bearish price action on index exhibiting a weak divergence from the Dow Jones Index.
For those with high risk tolerance, I liked the Direxion Daily Small Cap Bear 3x (TZA) – Leveraged Inverse ETF, the chart seems to be poised for a macro technical breakout. I have also been sharing this trading idea with my inner core group.
Direxion Daily Small Cap Bear 3x (TZA) – Leveraged Inverse ETF
Seek daily investment results, before fees and expenses, 300% of the inverse (or opposite), of the performance of the Russell 2000 Index.
As for those wanting to take unleveraged inverse position on Russell 2000. You could look at the RWM ETF.
Proshares Short Russell 2,000 -1x (RWM) – Unleveraged Inverse ETF
ProShares Short Russell2000 seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to the inverse (-1x) of the daily performance of the Russell 2000 Index.
Chart pattern and prices action tends to repeat itself and if you believe there will be impending crash coming in the Russell 2000 index, you may look into inverse Russell 2000 ETFs that enables you to profit from the potential downside.
