A new Commerce Department report showing a larger-than-expected trade deficit didn't help at all.
Our indexes continued their plunge Wednesday. A new Commerce Department report showing a larger-than-expected trade deficit didn't help much. The Nasdaq and the Dow have now erased the gains they made earlier this year.
Tech issues looked pretty grim. Siebel Systems fell 3.5%, or 42 cents, to $11.49; Intel fell 2.4%, or 67 cents, to $27.31; Microsoft fell 1.4%, or 35 cents, to $25.37; Computer Associates fell 1%, or 28 cents, to $26.77; and the Nasdaq-100 tracking stock fell 1.3%, or 47 cents, to $35.19.
At the bell, our InformationWeek 100 had lost 1.9%, or 6.16 points, to 317.72; and the Nasdaq index was down 1.6%, or 31.01 points, to 1,964.15, on heavy volume of 134 million shares. The Dow was down 1.5%, or 160.07 points, to 10,296.89; and the S&P 500 lost 1.5%, or 16.89 points, to 1,123.89.
