Two of the three most active ETFs stayed on the high road in the past month, while one has moved down a peg.

SPDR S&P 500 ( SPY ) andPowerShares QQQ ( QQQ ) are both near new highs after continuing advances in the past month. But iShares Russell 2000 ( IWM ) is 5% off a recent high.

SPY has gained 1.6% in the past month, while the tech-laden QQQ leapt 3.5%. But IWM, which tracked small-cap stocks in the stock market , slipped 0.9%.


For the year to date, SPY has produced a gain of almost 8% for investors vs. nearly 10% for QQQ and 1% for IWM.

Look back at 2013 and the tables were turned, with IWM up 39%, QQQ up 37% and SPY ahead 32%.
