As of yesterday’s close, the year-to-date gains for many of the major indices – excepting the first week run up – have been eliminated.

As of last night’s close, the NDX, the S&P500, and the Nasdaq comp are below the opening weeks’ highs.

DJIA:  The Dow sits just above its opening week highs:

The Russell 2000 is the one stand out, appreciably above its first weeks’ finish.
Russell_1 [5]

Essentially, the entire year’s performance gains have come from that single week’s run up.
