Small caps are flat at noon following yesterday’s selloffs, while larger companies have edged slightly higher.

The Small Ordinaries was up 0.06 per cent, or 1.5 points, to 3,085.9.

The ASX200 is up more, but just slightly. The benchmark index was 0.2 per cent higher, to 6,710.4.

Sectors are mixed, with tech, mining, consumer staples, healthcare and property down; and energy, industrial, consumer discretionary, financials, telecom and utilities rising.

But the biggest loser – in the past couple of days, anyway – has been Bitcoin. It’s shed 23% of its value, falling to $40,000. Since its last high on Saturday afternoon ($54,550) to its most recent low this morning, it dropped $260 billion off its market cap.

Here’s what’s happened in ASX small caps so far:
