Stocks continued to retreat in the quarter ended March 2001, as the bear market intensified. But bonds moved to the upside. The stock market sustained new losses as it reeled under a relentless stream of earnings shortfalls announcements. Following a brief upturn in January, technology stock prices resumed their tumble. Many investors, finding that even the staunch "old economy" stocks were declining in value, simply withdrew from the equity market. The Wilshire 5000 stock index, a proxy for the domestic stock market, lost -12.3 % for the quarter. Although some economic sectors suffered more than others (especially the technology and telecom groups) hardly any sector went unscathed.
