Tech Stocks: Four Days Down

Trading was relatively heavy, and mostly on the "sell" side.
Most of Tuesday, investors couldn't decide which way to go. Late in the afternoon, they chose down to make it four losing days in a row.

The Nasdaq Composite was hardest hit, falling 27.86 points, or 1.5%, to close the day at 1,881.75. Our InformationWeek 100 index faired better, closing essentially flat: It fell nine-one-hundredths of a point, or .03%, to close at 301.62.

The S&P 500 fell 9.48 points, or .9%, to end at 1,034.15; and the Dow fell 86.67 points, or 0.89%, to close at 9,624.16.

The Nasdaq-100 tracking stock fell 80 cents, or 2.3%, to close at $33.88 on heavy volume of 107 million shares.
