One of the most effective tools for tracking the market for small-cap stocks is the Russell 2000, the nation's leading small-cap index created by industry stalwart Russell Investments. Unlike the well-known Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and S&P 500, Russell's indices eschew committee selection in favor of a more objective, rules-based system for selecting index membership.

The broad-based Russell 3000, which is meant to cover the stock market as a whole, is simply the 3,000 companies with the largest market cap in the United States. The Russell 2000 is then just the bottom 2,000 companies of that index, offering a look at those small-cap companies with smaller market caps. It makes for an unbiased overview of the small-cap stocks that can help any investor get a better sense of what the market is doing and where it might be headed.
