It was a strong day in the stock market today. Small-cap stocks continue to push higher, with the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSEARCA:IWM) climbing higher by 1%. Tech followed the IWM, with the PowerShares QQQ ETF (NASDAQ:QQQ) up about 0.9% on the day.
The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average both did well too, up about 0.7% and 0.2% on Monday.
The rally comes after a funky finish to last week, where cloud stocks, high-growth tech plays and several blue-chip names took a beating. Monday’s rally also comes ahead of a busy week of quarterly results.
