The tech sector drove a substantial market rally today led by rosy projections from chipmaker Intel, the Wall Street Journal reports. Other technology stocks followed Intel—up 7.5%—as investors predicted a resurgence of the consumer electronics market. Good news from the Fed and the credit industry also helped fuel the surge. The Dow was up 257.62, or 3.1%, to 8,616.21. The S&P gained 26.83, to 932.67. And NASDAQ tacked on 63.17 to end at 1,862.90.
