I have often called emerging markets the "small caps of the world," given their overall capitalization and growth prospects.

So far, the "emerging markets crisis" continues to dominate headlines, but there also continue to be signs of stabilization -- notably in Brazil.

While China is getting the most attention today thanks to weaker PMI, many ETFs appear to be trying to reverse underperformance.

For this week, US small caps are in the spotlight, but the chart below looks extended, indicating that US small caps are stretched relative to the rest of the world and may be in the late stages of leadership.
