Small-cap stocks continue their end of the year tear. From their November low, small-caps are up over 17%. Small-caps have rallied this much this fast a few times over the last three and half decades, but it was most often following a big-sell off or bear market. Small-caps may be higher a year from now, but overbought is probably an understatement at these levels. Note the two horizontal lines on the chart represent plus and minus two standard deviations.
