Image S&P vs Nasdaq vs Russell in 2023: Getting More Selective With Your US Stock Index Strategy Watch on GoTo Webinar

In 2022, the S&P 500 declined by over 20% while the tech-heavy Nasdaq-100 declined by over 34%, and the small-cap Russell 2000 declined between these two finishing the year down 23%. Many saw the 2022 Nasdaq underperformance as a long-expected reversal of the growth benchmark’s faster rise in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the decade following the 2008-2009 financial crisis, both of which saw historically low interest rates drive higher and higher valuation multiples on growth stocks relative to value stocks.

So far in 2023, rallies in these three measures have many traders wondering if the bear market is over or whether this is just another “bear market rally”. With US equities covering 60% of the whole world’s stock market value, it is worth examining how best to position your portfolio’s exposure to this spread between value and growth, and between large and small stocks, both shorter term and longer term.

In this practical webinar, Tariq Dennison explains the S&P 500 vs Nasdaq 100 vs Russell 2000 components and fundamental metrics, and how to fine tune your exposure to them using micro-sized futures and option contracts.
