The Nasdaq stock market index may have missed an ‘all-clear’ signal

The Nasdaq Composite Index, the bellwether for technology stocks, rose 19.5% from Dec. 21 to Feb. 5 after a long decline. A 20% gain is commonly considered to be the end of a bear market. The Nasdaq (COMP) missed that mark by only half a percentage point.
