The value/size trade continues…

As you may recall, a large spike in volatility about two months ago began what looks to be at least a short-term shift in factor preferences. Value and size–the laggards throughout much of the last 5+ years–have begun to trump momentum… and it has not just been momentum that has struggled (global momentum is down every day this month, thus far), but also defensive factors like low volatility and quality as well.

Such a long trend (in equity style, mind you) is spilling into broader markets, punctuated by the precipitous fall in the cross-asset trend factor.
