TECH STOCKS: Small Losses Replace Early Gains

Blame it on a) terrorism worries; b) economic-turnaround doubts; c) gas prices; d) all of the above.

Continued worry about the possibility of new terrorist attacks, doubts about the economic turnaround, and unease as gas prices reach all-time highs made for a volatile day of trading Tuesday. While our indexes began with an upswing, they ended slightly down.

Winning the day was our InformationWeek 100, which rose 0.3%, or 0.93 of a point, to close at 308.84. The Nasdaq fell 0.4%, or 8.1 points, to close at 1,901.8. The Dow and the S&P 500 also sank under late sell-offs. The Dow fell 1.11 points, or 0.01%, to close at 10,063.64, and the S&P 500 fell 1.45 points, or 0.1%, to 1,093.95. The Nasdaq-100 tracking stock ended in the red, falling 28 cents, or 0.8%, to $34.03 on heavy volume of nearly 126 million trades.
