Broader Russell 2000 gains are seen as economic positive

Smaller U.S. companies are sending a positive signal for the economy, according to Chris Verrone, head of technical and macro research at Strategas Research Partners LLC. He cited broadening gains within the Russell 2000 Index in a Twitter post Thursday.

The percentage was the largest since January and more than triple the average since 2018.
