Cap-weighted does represent where the dollars are at work in the market. There is a lot more money dependent upon the earnings growth of Apple than, say, Lamb Weston (supplier of frozen potato, sweet potato, appetizer and vegetable products to restaurants and retailers).
Maybe but do Large Cap-Weighted indices represent the real Market TREND of Mechanical Investments posted here on this board?

Ahh. The answer would be no, because after you sift through two or three thousand stocks in the SIPro database you are not so likely to end up with megacap stocks unless you're particularly looking for them.

Given the momentum sorts common in MI-land my guess would lean toward a small- or mid-cap growth index.
