    It’s undeniably good news that the Russell 2000 is at a new all-time high. It may very well be that the broad U.S. market, as represented by indices including the S&P 500 (^GSPC), will soon join the Russell 2000(^RUT)  in new all-time high territory. Currently the broad market is still about 5% below highs set in late January — even after a strong rally to start this week.

    [$$] Small Caps’ Rise May Not Spread

    The Russell 2000 index has gained 6.2% so far this month, much more than the S&P 500’s 3.2% rise, the Dow industrials’ 3.5% rise and the Nasdaq Composite’s 4.6% rise. During the handful of times in the past four decades when the Russell has been the first of the four major indexes to hit a 52-week high after all those indexes went at least 30 days without one, the record has been mixed, according to Jason Goepfert of Sundial Capital Research. Mr. Goepfert found that sometimes stock indexes have all subsequently drifted downward, while sometimes all have gained.

    US STOCKS-Wall St rises on trade war truce; industrials lead

    U.S. stocks rose on Monday and gains in industrials helped propel the Dow to a more than two-month closing high, after a truce between the United States and China calmed fears that a trade war might be imminent. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's comments over the weekend that the two countries had put the prospect of a trade war "on hold" and agreed to hold more talks to boost U.S. exports to China boosted stocks at the opening, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average leading the charge higher.

    An Underwhelming Rally

    The market headlines will celebrate some good gains in the indices due to putting the China trade 'war' on hold, but the move lacked some vigor. It was gap-and-sit action with little chasing after the initial move higher. While breadth was solid at around 2-1 positive, it was not spectacular and there wasn't much indication that market players are concerned about the indices running away to the upside.

    Energy may give further impetus to U.S. small-cap stocks

    U.S. small-cap stocks look poised to extend a breakout move higher, especially if oil prices rally further and drive gains in smaller energy companies that have provided leadership in recent weeks, analysts and investors said. The Russell 2000 index of small capitalization stocks was on track for a fourth consecutive record closing high on Monday and registered its third week of gains Friday, sharply outperforming large-cap stocks on Wall Street. The Russell is up 11.8 percent since its Feb. 8 low for the year, while the S&P 500 is up just 5.8 percent since that date.

    The Russell 2000 index of small-capitalization stocks rose on Monday, advancing to its latest in a series of records as investors cheered an easing of U.S.-China trade tensions. While smaller companies are seen as having less exposure to trade issues, due to their higher concentration of U.S. revenue exposure, the market segment has rallied consistently for weeks, easily outperforming its larger-cap peers.

    Here’s why small-cap stocks can continue to beat their large-cap peers

    Small-cap stocks are on a roll, hitting a string of records while their large-cap peers remain stuck in a narrow trading range, and the run of outsize gains may just be getting under way. The Russell 2000 (^RUT), the most popular index for small-cap stocks, has risen in 11 of the past 14 trading days, and it posted its third straight record close on Friday. Morgan Stanley said that the U.S. economy was in the later stages of its economic cycle, which it noted had historically been a weak period for small and midcap stocks in past cycles “because wage pressures and other costs tend to hit these companies harder as they have fewer levers to pull to offset” them.
