James "Rev Shark" DePorre

The big story of this market in recent weeks isn't the bounce in the major indices but how well small-caps have been performing. has bounced 4.62% over the last nine days compared to the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which is up 3.5% during the same period. Individual stocks have been outperforming for weeks and that has driven the IWM to new all-time highs while the DJIA and the S&P 500 are not even close to their March highs, let alone the all-time highs in January.
