Stock Market Outlook – The Week Ahead – Small Cap Stocks IWM ETF – Third Week Of Mar 2017

The IWM ETF is my primary method of trading in the Small Cap Universe of stocks. Small capital stocks can provide above average returns for investors but they can also decimate a portfolio as small cap stocks tend to be very volatile. The IWM ETF follows the Russell 2000 small cap index. I have used the IWM ETF since 2002 to build profits into my portfolio.

Stock Market Outlook – The Week Ahead – Third Week Of Feb 2017

For the third week of February, all the indexes will be starting the week at all-time highs.
