Talk is Cheap and Overtrading is Expensive

We have a market on our hands which is uniquely fit for hindsight trading, with each mini-peak and valley in the context of a sideways range lends itself to looking back in lieu of focusing on the present. 

While the market did stage an impressive reversal yesterday (the S&P's largest in several years, according to some statistics I have seen), the small caps are flipping red as I write this, seen below on the updated 10-minute chart of the Russell ETF we observed this morning.
