Small caps continue to slump


Tech's hanging in there thanks to nice moves in Intel, Cisco, and IBM, but the Russell 2000 (IWM -1.6%) is the outlier to the downside again. Today's dip can't be blamed on the biotechs though - the IBB is up 0.3% for the session.

What's working? Defensive names like P&G (after a dividend boost), Coca-Cola, and Colgate-Palmolive are helping the Consumer Staples SPDR (XLP +0.3%). Also in the green are the utilities (XLU +0.9%).

Small-cap ETFs: IWM, TZA, TNA, UWM, VB, IJR, SLY, RWJ, URTY, SCHA, TWM, RWM, SRTY, SAA, DWAS, VTWO, VIOO, SDD, SBB, JKJ, RSCO, FYX, XSLV, EWRS, TWOK, SMLV, PXSC

Staples ETFs: XLP, VDC, FXG, RHS, FSTA, PSL, PSCC

Utility ETFs: XLU, IDU, VPU, NLR, GRID, JXI, NUCL, DBU, IPU, RYU, UPW, PUI, FUTY, FXU, SDP, PSCU, AXUT, UTLT

    Small Caps and Media Companies are about to hit hard, extend more losses.

    Sell off continues as job-figure-induced-panic lives on from Friday, but I think it has more to do with the new development in Ukraine and Russia. Strange how gold wasn't able to get a boost this time. Investors might be indecisive as the market has been very volatile and unfriendly to average investors, but this may be a great entry for several big names.

    The bull run is fading and it starts with small-caps and momentum names, that's all
