Small-cap benchmark Russell 2000 pops for a 3rd straight day

The Russell 2000 index just wrapped up its third consecutive winning session.

The small-cap benchmark closed higher by 1.75% on Monday, its best day since Jan. 22. That follows gains of 1.53% on Friday and 1.5% Thursday. Over the past week, the Russell 2000 has surged more than 5%.

Even with the recent string of positive days, the Russell 2000 continues to lag the three major averages for the year. It’s up 0.9% in 2024, while the S&P 500 has a 5.3% gain. Tech continues to dominate, with the Nasdaq Composite up more than 6% this year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up just shy of 3% in the period.
