A benchmark ASX small cap index has once again hit its highest level since the Global Financial Crisis.

The Small Ordinaries index was up 15.9 points, or 0.49 per cent, to 3,243.7 at lunchtime. Its three-and-a-half days of gains have clawed back losses in late March to eclipse a 13-year high set in mid-March.

The All Ordinaries and the ASX200 were both up 0.19 per cent, while the Emerging Companies nano-cap index was up 0.21 per cent.

Sectors were mixed, with materials, industrials and financials posting modest losses and property up strongly, by 1.8 per cent.

Tech was the second-biggest gainer, up 0.8 per cent following yesterday’s mammoth 5.1 per cent rise – the sector’s best day of the year.
