Bond Bloodbath Batters Big-Tech As Small Caps Surge On Short-Squeeze

Futures were all positive overnight, but as the European session started, selling pressure in stocks began with Nasdaq notably underperforming into the US cash open. At the equity open, things went just a little bit turbo as Small Caps exploded higher and Big Tech tumbled…NOTE things weakened a little into the close (after Fed’s Kaplan joined Rosenburg in retirement)…

Today’s surge in Small Caps relative to Nasdaq was the largest divergence since March and pushed the pair up to significant resistance…

Biggest short-squeeze in 6 weeks today…
