  The above chart, as of 8/21/2015,  covers the changes in the DJIA (blue), the Nasdaq Comp (gold), and the S&P500 (red) on a percentage basis … going back to the first USA Markets’ correction in August 2015.   Here, the DJIA is clearly outperforming in 2016.
   The chart below, as of 8/21/2015, covers the Russell 1000 (RUI –lt.. green), 2000 (RUT – purple), and 3000 (RUA – lt. blue), also  on a percentage basis … going back to the first Markets correction in August 2015.  Here the Russell 2000 (RUT) is a clear laggard, potentially a cause for concern, or at least a candidate requiring more homework.
