Small caps outperform; TSLA rolls over

Small cap stocks are outperforming today as gains broaden out. The Russell 2000 is up 1.6%, which leaves its loss for the year at 2.6%.

Tesla (TSLA 209.89, -2.30, -1.1%) rolled over recently, weighing down the major indices. The S&P 500 consumer discretionary sector (-0.5%) is showing the steepest loss now among the three sectors that are trading down.

WTI crude oil futures are up 1.5% to $74.32/bbl, likely tied to new developments in the Middle East that may disrupt supplies. Houthi rebels are seeking more weapons from Iran, according to Politico.
