CNBC now has Nasdaq ticker back on site but says it is not sure if it is giving an accurate reading at 2:15 Eastern

I see. That's why the amount down figure was sort of stuck. The DOW is really swooning...

That ought to put a smidge of doubt into the "Tech rules!!!" crowd. Won't last long, of course.

It's a bit odd that the NASDAQ went down under such normal loading. It's been handling 1.2 billion shares and higher without a problem. Mainframes - ya just can't trust 'em. 8-}
