You know I don't follow all of these, but most of the tech stocks you

many off of high-risk V-bases.

My impression is that Nasdaq still needs time, Adam, before we get a
lasting rally. Naz remains in trading range.
<<Except, of course, for the Internut stocks, which are "mostly dead".>>

institutions have accumulated enough, we can look forward to those
