Why are investors turning their attention to mid-cap stocks?

CME_MINI:EMD1!   E-mini S&P MidCap 400 Futures
This will be the 2 questions we will be discussing today

1. So, what is happening on this divergence and its implication?
2. And who is leading who?
a. Large cap leading the mid-to-small cap market? Or
b. The mid-to-small cap leading the large cap market?

The answer: The mid-to-small cap is leading the large cap market and why is it so?

If recession hits, hypothetically mid-to-small cap stocks employing the majority of the work force or employees in United States will be the most affected, this huge workforce is also considered as the mass consumer.

The large cap stocks, their business depends on the mass consumer. If the mass consumers start to tighten their belts, the large cap stocks revenue will also be affected subsequently.
