Think this trade might work well in this environment, nice profit potential on the downside and not giving up too much on the upside.

If we hit the upper wing at 1250, I will add a second butterfly centered at 1230.

If we hit the lower wing at 1090, I will add a second butterfly centered at 1110.

Normally I would center the initial trade 40 points below the RUT price, but I went slightly off plan this time because I liked the payoff graph of this version better. Basically I wanted to have a bit more margin for error on the upside in case the market continues rallying.
