Ratio of Small Cap to Large Cap Stocks

Small cap refers to publicly traded companies whose market capitalization value is under $1 billion dollar. Small cap stocks have on average outperformed large cap and medium cap stocks over the past decades. The main reason for this is that they are usually companies that have lots of room to grow. However, investing in these small companies comes also with some disadvantages such as an increase in volatility and risks.

An ETF that represents small cap stocks well is the iShares Russell 2000 (Ticker Symbol: IWM). There are also many ETFs related to large cap stocks. I can cite for example the iShares S&P 500 Index Fund (IVV), an ETF that tracks the performance of the Standard & Poor's 500 Index, which represents the 500 U.S companies with the highest market capitalization.

The current market ratio compares the performance of large cap stocks to the performance of small cap stocks. It is calculated by dividing the iShares Russell 2000 ETF price by the iShares S&P 500 Index Fund price. The composite ticker name is "_Ratio_Small_Large_Caps".

An increase in the Small/Large composite indicates that small caps are outperforming large caps, while a decrease in value indicates that large caps are performing better than small caps.
The composite requires bother ETF symbols IWM and IVV. You can get EOD data for these symbols using Historical Stock Market Data.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
