  • The Strength and Recovery in Smallcaps has been the Character of this Bull Market.
  • For now the bottom was made closer to a Major Swing Low.

  • The momentum of 2023-2024 has taken a pause. Everything going up has stopped for a while.
  • Now one needs to be selective and work harder for outperformance.
