The rotation from technology to value that saw the NASDAQ lose 4.4% last week continued into trading today with the NASDAQ shedding another 2.5% while the 30 stock Dow finished with a small gain.

At the close:

  • Dow +27 to 31,521
  • S&P 500 -30 to 3,876
  • NASDAQ -341 to 13,533
  • Oil +2.25 to 61.50 (15 month high)
  • Gold +30 to 1805
