NEW YORK — The Nasdaq’s retreat from its
all-time highs last month is now officially considered a
correction in a bull market.
The tech-heavy index on Monday closed down 2.22% unofficially
at 12,633.61, roughly 10.6% below the Feb. 12 record close at
14,095.47 and exceeding the 10% closing-basis threshold
considered by market professionals as confirmation of a
correction. The Nasdaq entered the latest bull market in
September, rising more than 30% to its peak.
