The Small Caps are Lagging – Is This a Problem?

The rally off the 2009 bottom has been one of the biggest in history. From a time when many predicted the end of Wall Street as know it and the loss of an entire group of investors, the market bottomed.

Now, after 10 years, some analysts are calling for a top, citing the lagging small caps as evidence investors are rotating out of small caps and into large caps, with the expectation they’ll leave the large caps next.

Any trader who has done well and survived for a long time has a long list of stories involving bad trades, improper operations, terrible discipline and horrible luck. But those situations provide the stepping stones to success. Each unfortunate event, whether within or outside the trader’s control, provided a valuable lesson that, if listened to and heeded, paved the way for a successful career.
