The stock market got off a sluggish start this morning, but then proceeded to advance at a strong pace for much of the day. Of note, traders were feeling more optimistic about the technology sector, in particular, and that helped push the broad market higher. At the end of the session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead 217 points; the S&P 500 Index was up 31 points; and the NASDAQ, which displayed leadership, was higher by 110 points.
