DAILY UPDATE: Are we living through Dot-com Bust 2.0?

By Staff Reporters



Also known as the internet bubble or the information technology bubble, the dotcom bubble was the unprecedented rise in equity valuations of internet-based tech companies during the bull market of the late 1990s.

Thanks mainly to speculation and substantial funding for these new internet start-ups, investments in dot-coms (named as such for the .com online top-level domain [TLD] used by such companies) boosted the NASDAQ Composite Index (COMP) from 751 in January 1995 to a peak of 5,048.62 on March 10, 2000. But the bubble eventually burst in March 2000, with many companies failing to even come close to fulfilling their promise. As such, the NASDAQ fell by more than 75 percent between March 2000 and October 2002, thus wiping out more than $5 trillion in market value.


  • Some financial and economic analysts are beginning to compare this year’s tech rout (which has cost the NASDAQ $8 trillion in value so far) with the bursting of the dot-com bubble in 2000–2002, when the NASDAQ lost the equivalent of $8.6 trillion in today’s dollars. The industrial-focused Dow, on the other hand, is on track for its best October in history.
  • The FOMC is likely a lock to hike interest rates by a large75 basis points on Wednesday for the fourth straight meeting. Evidence that its inflation-fighting campaign is working could come on Friday, with the October jobs report.
