We’ve just published today’s Morning Lineup featuring all the news and market indicators you need to know ahead of the trading day.
Although S&P 500 and DJIA futures are on pace to erase most of Monday’s declines, the same can’t be said for the Nasdaq which isn’t even on pace to erase half of Monday’s declines. The last couple of weeks have been especially tough on the tech sector, and therefore the Nasdaq, versus the broader market.

While the Nasdaq spent much of the rest of the week trying to dig itself out of the hole, shortly before the close last Friday and into Monday, the bottom fell out again.
