Nasdaq 100 futures fall to bear market territory

Tuesday, January 22, 2008

NEW YORK (Thomson Financial) - U.S. stock futures fell sharply Tuesday, enough to put them into bear market territory.

S&P 500 futures were down 55.40 points at 1,269.90, which 20% below the Oct. 11 high of 1,586.50.

Nasdaq 100 futures slid 69.25 points to 1,780.25, which represents a 21% decline from the Nov. 1 high of 2,256.25.

The Wall Street rule of thumb is that a 20% decline from the previous high represents a bull market.

The Dow industrials futures shed 469 points to 11,637, or 18% below the Oct. 11 high of 14,270.
