Dow Comes Back To Par; Nasdaq Just Fades

A few strong components of the Dow propped it up at the close, but there were no tech shares that could help the Nasdaq.

If you were expecting the Dow to snap back up from Friday's low, you were disappointed. Although it was the big index winner Monday, that's only because it closed essentially flat.

All of our other indexes glowed red. Perhaps the biggest worry for investors is terrorism. Apparently, you don't have to live in Boston (where the Democrats are gathering), New York (where the Republicans will convene), or Athens (where the world will meet for the Olympics) to feel edgy.

Anyway, as noted before, the Dow ended flat--0.3 of a point--at 9,961.92. The S&P 500 fell 0.2%, or 2.13 points, to 1,084.07. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 0.5%, or 10.07 points, to 1,839.02; and our InformationWeek 100 brought up the rear, having fallen 0.8%, or 2.18 points, to rest at 277.42.

The Nasdaq-100 tracking stock fell in heavy trading. It was down 0.4%, or 15 cents, at $34.06, on volume of 112.4 million shares.
