Today’s Chart of the Day was shared by Jason Leavitt (@JasonLeavitt). It’s a monthly candlestick chart of the Russell 2000 ETF, $IWM, over the past four years. Small-Caps have gotten a lot of buzz lately, and rightfully so. The Russell 2000 has surged more than 18% in November, putting it on track for its best month ever. It’s easy to look at a move like this and say price has gone “too far too fast.” However, it’s important to consider that Small-Caps have made zero forward progress in more than two years. From this longer-term perspective, it certainly appears as though we’re in the early innings of a new cyclical bull market.

Two things about leadership rotation from large-caps to small-caps:
1. From a time perspective, it's been ongoing for a while beneath the surface.
2. From a degree perspective, even with recent acceleration it's just getting started. pic.twitter.com/bBWHucv1zF

The $USD is hovering ominously just above well-defined intermediate lows, and 52-week lows, centered on the 92+/- level. Any weakness in the period immediately ahead would set in motion a prospective drop to much lower levels. pic.twitter.com/bPfoZLZ7pJ
