The Dow is just a few ticks away from the 14,000 marker, but it may not make it there, says CNBC's John Melloy. Why? Take a look at small-cap stocks, he says. Stocks with smaller market values – as represented by the Russell 2000 (IWM) – got pounded. As smaller companies are considered to be riskier than their large-cap counterparts, they're considered to be a leading indicator of the "animal spirits" that lead a rally, Melloy says.
