A little while ago I filmed a Russell 2000 forecast video, and explained how it was beginning to come back to life. We received a couple of comments on our YouTube channel requesting an update to that video, so today I’m giving the people exactly what they want!
The Russell 2000 is technically an index of 2,000 small-cap companies. But that’s a little misleading because most of the stocks trading on the Russell 2000 have a market cap of about $1 billion to $8 billion, so they’re not really small companies…
Think medium-cap stocks waiting to go prime time like Amazon in 2005 and Netflix in 2015.
But I don’t want to waste any more time, so let’s get into today’s analysis where I’ll give you my Russell 2000 forecast for the rest of 2021. I’ll explain exactly where I see the index landing by the end of the year, plus five stocks in the index that are doing well.
My Russell 2000 Forecast and Top 5 Stocks in the Index
The Russell 2000 is an important index because it’s highly sensitive to international and political events. And if you compare the Russell 2000 with the S&P 500 over the past five to 10 years, you’ll notice the correlation is usually close.
Usually, but not always…
If you look at a six-month chart, you’ll see that the Russell 2000 sometimes leads and lags. So the two don’t always move in step with each other.
One of those lag periods began when former U.S. President Donald Trump declared a trade war with China. You see, there are a ton of Russell 2000 stocks with huge correlation to China, and these smaller companies aren’t conglomerates like J&J and P&G.
So they don’t have a million different products. They tend to have one service that’s made in China, and when there’s an issue — BOOM!
They’re out of business.
Check out my short video below to get my Russell 2000 forecast for the rest of 2021 and the top 5 stocks to target within. And be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

P.S. There’s a new stock market quirk that Future of Wealth Head Trader Lance Ippolito is calling a “Blockbuster Breakout Date.”
And he says these dates are only tied to a certain group of stocks in an explosive part of the health care sector.
That’s probably why most people don’t think to trade them.
But the small band of traders who’ve been trading these “Blockbuster dates” beside Lance have already had the chance to cash in on some powerful winners…
I’m talking about gains like 115% on TEVA… 175% on BHC… and even 210% on CRMD!
So now Lance wants to show everyday traders how these explosive dates work, and how anyone can start targeting biotech stocks like these today.
