Small-caps plunged in January, with many quant funds then rushing to unwind positions triggering an even bigger sell-off, but have rebounded rapidly as state-backed funds have expanded their support to the sector.

Major benchmarks in China have now erased — or came close to wiping out — year-to-date losses thanks to a raft of support measures from the Beijing government.
