Russell 2000 Index is the "Wild Card" Today

As I write this at 11:30 am EDT on Wednesday, here's a brief summary of where the markets stand.

Apart from Materials and Energy, it's a "risk-on" day, with Consumer Discretionary leading the Major Sectors group.

Dow 30 is up by 5 stocks to 1, SPX up 2-1, NDX up 3-1, OEX up 3-1, and RUT at 50/50 is the laggard and today's "wild card"...THE one to watch, along with Gold (as it continues to look toppy at this Weekly triple top level).
