As Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough noted to subscribers this morning:

"The Russell 2000 lagged (again) last week, dropping -2.0% on the week (vs. -0.7% for the SP500); at -16.7% from its all-time high in July, RUT is back to within 330 bps of being in crash mode (> 20% decline from the July peak); Russell 2000 peaked when US corporate profits peaked (Q2 of 2015)."
