Stock Market: Economically Sensitive Indexes Are The Weakest

Everybody is talking about the U.S. recovery, yet the economically sensitive indexes are the weakest. And of course, these deal directly with the domestic economy. You don`t have the multinationals in the Russell 2000, that you have in the Dow Jones.

And if all this story about how there is weakness overseas, but America is an island of strength in a sea of recession, if that really were true why are the indexes that are most tied to the U.S. Economy the weakest?
