All are above their 50-day moving averages and aren't showing any signs of slowing down.

By my estimation, beta should be coming back into vogue for a bit, so I am rounding up my firm's portfolios to be fully engaged with some nice high-octane trades today.  I have added the following to these portfolios.

1. Small Caps (represented by the iShares Russell 2000 Index ETF (NYSEARCA:IWM)) -- When markets break to new highs, I prefer to look for catch-up potential rather than chase where the money has already gone.  Small caps are well off their lows and have had relative strength versus the big caps, so this tells me they have a lot of catching up to do.  They are not overbought, and have recaptured the 50-day moving average as well.  Finally, they broke the near term downtrend.  I added a 10% position in small caps today.

2.  Italy (represented by the iShares MSCI Italy Index ETF (NYSEARCA:EWI)) -- If you follow me on the Buzz & Banter you know I have and continue to love Italy.  As Italy recaptures its 50-day moving average, it has the opportunity there to have a nice break higher, especially if the Ukrainian situation settles down a bit.

3. Brazil (represented by the iShares MSCI Brazil Index ETF (NYSEARCA:EWZ)) -- Brazil is doing one of my favorite technical setups for an 18-month momentum run.  It goes like this:

Step 1: positive moving average cross after a durable bottom.
Step 2: a tap on the 50-day moving average as the RSI is around 50.
Step 3: a long ride of the 50-day moving average higher for 9-18 months.
