Nasdaq enters correction territory

The Nasdaq fell by 2.4% yesterday, turning negative for the year and entering “correction” territory (i.e. dropping over 10% from its most recent peak). The tech-heavy index remains up 30% from pre-coronavirus levels last February, due in part to strong demand for tech products and services during the coronavirus outbreak.

More context: The Nasdaq is one of three major US stock indices, along with the Dow Jones and the S&P 500.
