Interesting divergence between the S&P500 and Russell 2000 in the month of July.   The S&P is in a classic short-term uptrend, making higher highs and higher lows since bottoming in early June.  The Russell, however, after making a short-term high in July broke its uptrend line and has been making lower highs.

What does it mean?  Who knows for certain and could be just noise as the sell-off in the Russell is less than 4 percent.  It does show, however, big cap is in vogue and the economically sensitive small caps not faring as well this summer.   Keep it on your radar.
