As the month comes to a close, today a first in the Technology industry could take place.

As long as the NAS Comp index doesn’t lose more than 8% today, a new monthly closing high will be in the books.
The above chart of the Nasdaq 100 starts the morning 1.47% above its 3/31/2000 highs. As long as it doesn’t fall more than 66 points today, it will close at an all-time monthly closing high.
The chart below measures the 3-Year annualized returns of the Nasdaq since 1981. When the Nasdaq was peaking in 2000, its 3-year annualized return was in excess of 50% per year.
The above chart reflects that that Nasdaq has done well the past three years (average 18% per year), yet its 3-year average is less than half of the gains that took place during the highs established back in 2000.
This 3-pack reflects that the Dow, Russell and S&P 500 will close the month at all-time monthly closing highs.
