Roller-coaster week for tech stocks

A 500-point plunge followed by a rebound does not bode well for technology issues as analysts remain skittish and online traders hit snags.

roundup  In this week's market madness, the technology industry was among the sectors hardest hit by Monday's stock drubbing on Wall Street, with the Dow Jones Industrials and Nasdaq seeing their largest one-day point declines ever. The tables would only turn Tuesday when the market made a record-breaking rebound.
