Editor’s Note: Investors are looking for answers…

They want to know when markets will bottom. While it’s impossible to predict the future, there are key indicators we can look to for guidance.

In today’s guest editorial, Bryan Bottarelli, Head Trade Tactician of Monument Traders Alliance, tells us about one critical support level he is looking to for answers.

(Today’s article originally appeared in Monument Traders Alliance’s free e-letter, Trade of the Day.)

It pays to listen to Bryan’s trading insights. This past week, he went nine for nine, with a 27.59% average weighted gain in his real-time trading platform, The War Room. The Nasdaq lost 2% over the same time span.

And if you want to see what he is doing to dominate these markets, Bryan is offering you FREE access to the War Room Open House next week from October 24 to 28 (from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET).

The last time he did this, attendees had a chance to cash in 15 winners in five days… including an overnight double!

FOR FREE! No catch… no delayed billing… no BS.

It’s the one question on every investor’s and trader’s mind…

After a brutal September, will the markets find a bottom here in October?

And if so, when? And at what level?

Today, I’ll aim to answer those critically important questions in the simplest way possible.

It all revolves around small cap stocks.

You see, because small cap stocks are riskier than their large cap peers, they tend to hit their peaks before anything else.

Why is this?

It’s quite simple, really.

Small cap companies tend to be more sensitive to changes in the economy than larger companies – which means they respond more dramatically in times of economic growth and expansion.

Obviously, that’s great for good times.

However, when the pendulum swings back and times get tough, small cap companies are impacted just as negatively on the downside.

As a result, small cap stocks typically hit their bottoms before their large cap peers.

With that in mind, let’s see where the Russell 2000 small cap index is trading.

As a tracking device, I’m going to use the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSE: IWM).

Check out the chart below…

As you can see by my annotation, $165 has been a key level of support for the small cap sector since July. If it holds again here in October, it could establish a double bottom.

That could be your early indicator that the major market averages are close to setting their lows for the year. This is the level I’d use to determine whether it’s time to buy the dip… or whether stocks have new lows to set in the fourth quarter.
