A red day for the tech sector, and in turn a lower finish for the tech-heavy US Tech 100, undoing gains from the day before though its price staying near its previous first resistance level giving contrarian breakouts little to cheer about. Not many of its components were in the green with Incyte and Sirius on top, plenty suffering in the bottom where losses were heaviest for Tesla Inc, MercadoLibre Inc, and PayPal Holdings Inc (All Sessions).

Non-component Coinbase listing took the attention.

As for earnings today amongst the tech-heavy index's components, its (non-tech) Pepsi, general market focus to remain on financials as more of them release their figures today and tomorrow. From a technical standpoint, its price near the highs means most of its boxes continue to flash green, though will take less to shift compared to its bull run into February due to its technicals dragged higher over the past two months.
